Fresh from Cameroun, Berekum Chelsea host Accra Hearts of Oak in their outstanding Glo Premier League game at the Golden City Park this afternoon.
The question among students of the game is whether the visitors would be able to handle the ‘heat’ of the Champions League campaigners.
Indeed, it will be a tall order for the Phobians considering the wind of optimism blowing in the camp of the ‘Blues’ who are placed seventh with 40 points on the league table.
Besides the quality of players Chelsea could boast of, their Champions League feat- qualifying to the group stage- is an additional motivation to grab all three points.
Champions League top scorer Emmanuel Clottey is a doubt for the clash due to an injury he sustained in Cameroun against Coton Sport last Sunday.
But the inform striker has said: “They will not survive, we shall definitely prevail over them, we will beat them.”
Notwithstanding uncertainties in the game, Hearts’ current form makes a win or draw a remote possibility in today’s game.
