1 month ago

In a captivating display at the Golden City park, Hearts of Oak's flair and prowess were on full display as they stormed to a remarkable 3-0 win over Berekum Chelsea in the Ghanaian top-flight on Wednesday.

Goals from Hamza Issah, Linda Mtange and Cisse Kassim condemned the host to their second defeat at home and 12th of the 2023-24 season.

Issah Kuka's exquisite and flamboyant pass found its way to Hearts top scorer Hamza Issah, who rattled in a belter inside the box to give the visitors the lead in the 19th minute.

Two further goals from Linda Mtange (59th) and Cisse Kassim (83rd) underscored Hearts of Oak's resilience to win at the Golden City park.

The win is a massive relief for the Ghanaian giants after they lost 1-0 at home to city rivals Accra Lions last week.

The match was a testament to Hearts of Oak's tactical acumen, with the team showing their ability to dominate possession, create scoring opportunities and shut down Chelsea's marauding attacks.

The win propels Hearts to 11th on the table on 38 points,  but still trail their opponents by three points on 41,  and could signal a team that is finding its rhythm and cohesion under pressure, ready to challenge for at least, a top four finish.
