Hearts of Oak welcome Club Industriel Kamsar to the Accra Sports Stadium for a one-off Caf Champions League preliminary fixture.
Shaping from the usual two legged affair, the prelims fixture will now be played only once due to political instability depriving the first leg that was to be staged in Conakry last weekend.
After military men opening gunfire near the government palace in Guinea’s capital in a coup week earlier to first leg, the Confederation of African Football (Caf) through the Ghana Football Association communicated a change of fixture.
With the game now coming at the Accra Sports Stadium, Hearts may have a huge advantage to progress into the second round of Caf Champions League qualifying phase.
However, the Ghanaian side can be laughing at the wrong side of their mouth if they underestimate Club Industriel Kamsar who boast of a very determined setup.
Both teams have confirmed a strong lineup in Ghana’s capital with Hearts boss Samuel Boadu naming Richard Atta in post, Fatawu, Robert Addo, Alhassan and Ovouka completing the defense.
Caleb Amankwa, Nettey, Ansah-Botchway in midfield while Ibrahim, Barnieh and Mensah lead the line.
