Hearts of Oak host Asante Kotoko on Sunday

By Thomas Freeman, Metro FM

The latest installment of the Ghana Premier League’s Super Clash between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko this Sunday will be the 99th Ghanaian top flight meeting between the two clubs.

The two Premier League giants kicked off their big rivalry at the Jackson Park in Kumasi but the match ended abruptly over heated disagreements. Hearts were leading 4-2 at the time the game was called off prompting a replay of the match on November 2, 1958.

Hearts have since gone on to win 33 of the total 98 meetings against Kotoko who have secured 30 wins with 35 being draws.

Metro FM journalist Thoman Freeman Yeboah gives a detailed breakdown on the statistics of Hearts vrs Kotoko clash as we build up to another epic clash on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Week 2

23rd February, 1992

Mahmoud Ahmed 82nd for Kotoko and Emmanuel Armah equalized for Hearts of Oak in the 90nd  minute through a penalty.

Will this repeat itself in the 2012/13 season

Kotoko beat Aduana Stars 2-1 at home, while Hearts won away to New Edubiase at no other grounds than Bekwai Gyamfi Park in their week 1 matches and the week 2 game is Hearts of Oak vs Kotoko in Accra

Will what happened in 1992 repeat itself.

 

Hearts are without a win in their last three home matches against Kotoko

2010/11

Hearts 0-2 Kotoko

2012/13

Hearts 0-0 Kotoko

It is likely a team will avoid a lose if it lead 1-0 by the close of half time

Hearts 3-2 Kotoko

Mfum scored in the 40th minute, but Hearts fought from the 1-0 goal deficit to win 3-2 in the 2nd half.

  17. SOCCERMAN says:

    Once it is from Freeman u can be sure it is tendentiously false and fraudulent. The first ever match between KOTOKO and Hearts is not included apparently because KOTOKO won. It is also palpably false that the last time one of the teams came from a goal down to win was in 1963/64 allegedly won by Hearts 3-2. I watched the match in 1989 at the Accra Stadium when Hearts led 1-0 until 7 minutes to time when KOTOKO scored 3 goals to end 3-1, courtesy goals by Yaya Kassum, Joe Debrah and Kwaku Adu. Besides, in league matches in Accra, Hearts and Kotoko have each won 14, and in Kumasi have each won 17. In all competitive matches, Kotoko have won 51 and Hearts 42. It is common knowledge that Hearts are in the habit of claiming what they are not. They started calling themselves Continental Club Masters in the 1980′s when Kotoko had won 2 Continental cups and when they had not won any. If you want genuine football statistics, consult “Prof” Awal Mohammed of Kessben FM fame, not dubious Thomas Freeman.

  18. crusader, NJ says:

    Hearts Started calling themselves continental club masters in year 2000, not in the 80s @soccerman.

    • Koohia says:

      Crusader,I don’t know how old you’re but it is true that Hearts was called the CCC in the 1980′s and it didn’t start in the 2000′s. it was in the 80′s when the wonderful miracles were being performed by the fearsome five. When in spite of heavy defeats in first matches you could be sure that Hearts would turn the results around. Truth is that if Hearts had not been robbed on several ocassions they’d have been the continental champions during the period. The CCC was taken to indicate that even though Hearts might not have been the African champions, it obvious that they were the masters on the continent. PHOBIA …..

  19. Isaac agyapong says:

    How old were U then Crusader? I personally don’t trust Freeman’s stats. Let Awal also bring his facts and lets compare with our facts with the legends alive like the Polo’, Osei Kofi’s and Razak or Mfum.
