Hearts of Oak will host their city rivals, Great Olympics at the Accra Sports Stadium today in a week two fixture of the BetPawa Premier League.
The Rainbows and Great Olympics meet again 3 months after the Premier League match which Great Olympics won 3-0. Hearts of Oak are on a poor run of form as they’re approaching this clash after defeats from Aduana Stars, Real Tamale, Great Olympics, Eleven Wonders and King Faisal failing to register a single victory in their past 6 games. The coach and the players will probably put extra effort in the defense as they have been conceding goals for 6 consecutive matches now.
Great Olympics, on the other hand, are approaching the match in a good mood after claiming a 1-0 win in Premier League against Bechem United extending their unbeaten streak to 3 matches, however, Great Olympics have been performing poorly in defense lately as they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive away matches now.
Hearts of Oak enters the game with a goal defeat in the season opener against Aduana Stars in Dormaa but they are in high spirit to get their first three points in the Ga Mantse Derby.
Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics have met 6 times since March 2020. Hearts of Oak have won once, 2 matches ended in a draw while Great Olympics have won 3 times.

Hearts of Oak have scored 5 goals in these 6 head-to-head matches in total while Great Olympics have scored 7. So, overall, Great Olympics have a better head-to-head record against Hearts of Oak in their recent history.
Hearts of Oak are on a losing streak – they have lost to Aduana Stars, Real Tamale, Great Olympics, Eleven Wonders and King Faisal in their previous 5 matches in the Ghana Premier League. Overall, Hearts of Oak have won 6 of their last 20 matches, losing 8 and drawing 6, while Great Olympics have won 7 of their last 20 matches, losing 8 and drawing 5.
