Hearts of Oak to face Esperance in CC Cup

Hearts of Oak will face Esperance in the final round of qualifiers in the CAF Confederation Cup. The Phobians will be away to the Tunisian giants in the first leg encounter between May 15-17.

The tie is the repeat of the 2000 CAF Champions League final where Hearts reigned supreme in both legs with wins.

Esperance is one of the sides that failed to reach the group stage of the Champions League and had to drop to Africa’s second tier competition.

The Phobans avoided crack sides like Al Ahly, Etoile du Sahel, Raja Casablanca and ASEC Mimosas.

Defender Harrison Afful will also be returning to the Accra Sports Stadium where he played several times against Hearts during his time in the Ghana Premier League.
