The Phobians won’t have the advantage over their visitors after Caf ruled that their game against the Guinean club should be played without supporters
Ghana Premier League winners Hearts of Oak will face CI Kamsar in the preliminary round of the Caf Champions League without supporters at the Accra Sports Stadium, AshesGyamera.com understands.
The Phobians were initially billed to travel to Guinea last weekend for the first leg but that game was cancelled due to the political unrest in the country.
As a result, Caf ruled that a one-off game must be played at the Accra Sports Stadium where the winner after regulation time or penalty shootouts will progress to next stage.
Although, Hearts initially announced match tickets for the game, reports suggest that the game will be behind closed doors as no supporter will be allowed entry into the facility.
According to reports, Caf wants to provide a level playing ground for the two teams since Kamsar did not have the opportunity to host Hearts in Guinea in front of their supporters
Also, photographers, police, red cross and ambulance personnel that will be having access to the inner perimeter during the game have been ordered to undergo Covid-19 tests.
Hearts will be without their new signing Gladson Awako after the midfielder reportedly left the team’s camp and wants his contract terminated due to spiritual attacks.
The winner after the game tomorrow will meet Wydad Athletic Club from Morocco in the second round for a place in the group stage.
