Hearts of Oak faceoff against Aduana Stars in GPL opener

Aduana Stars will host Accra Hearts of Oak on matchday 1 of the Ghana Premier League on Saturday 14th November 2020.

Aduana Stars vs Hearts of Oak

The season’s opener between the former champions will be played at the Nana Agyemang Badu II Stadium at Dormaa.

Aduana Stars are still the defending champions heading into the tie against Accra Hearts of Oak.

They were the last team to win the Ghana Premier League (GPL) in 2017 and the league has since failed to realise its completion in the past three years.


In the abrogated 2019/2020 Ghana Premier League Aduana Stars after 15 games were lying at the summit of the league ladder, while Hearts of Oak with a game fewer than the Dormaa outfit were lying 9th on the league log.

Last season Hearts of Oak managed to hold Aduana Stars to a goalless draw when they faced off at Dormaa on matchday nine.

Aduana Stars will be counting on the goal-scoring prowess of Yahaya Mohammed when they take on the Phobians.

Meanwhile, the Accra giants will rely on former Bechem United forward Abednego Tetteh as he seeks to start life in the club on a good note.

However, Hearts of Oak will be sweating over the absence of two of their attacking forces last season in the persons of Kofi Kordji and Joseph Esso, who have both left the side.
