Their most recent encounter on November 12, 2023, concluded in a scoreless stalemate, highlighting the closely contested nature of their matchups.

Looking at their season statistics, Legon Cities have secured nine victories out of 25 matches, accompanied by five draws and 11 defeats.

They have netted a total of 20 goals while conceding 27. Meanwhile, Hearts of Oak have registered eight wins from 26 matches, along with 11 draws and seven defeats. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 23.
