CAF Champions League: It’s A First Leg “Walk Over” For Hearts

    The  Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has decided to turn the scheduled two legged tie between Hearts of Oak and Industriel de Kamsar into a one-off qualification tie.

    This follows the political instability in Guinea after the military take-over which makes the Guinea side unable to host the reigning Ghanaian Premier League Champions in Conakry.

    A letter sent to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) General Secretary, Mr Prosper Harrison Addo by CAF indicated their decision to apply Articles 1 & 2.1 of Chapter XIII of the Regulations governing the competition.

    The regulation states that: “In case of troubles, wars, forces majeure or internal situations in a country that may affect the security conditions during planning of a match, the Organizing Committee may take the following measures: 2. In two leg matches (home and away):

    “2.1 If the case concerns only one country, the federation would play its home match on a ground in another country, or a single game will be played on the opponent’s field. Where appropriate, the Organizing Committee would determine the match venue.”

    This means that the match will be played at the Accra Sports Stadium on September 19 with the winner of this single match to qualify to the second preliminary round of the competition

    The regulation further adds: “In case of a draw at the end of the regulatory time, the winner shall be determined by penalty kicks in accordance with the Laws of the Game”.

    Hearts have stepped up preparation for the clash having recently lost a friendly to Togolese Champions ASKO de Kara 1-0 in Lome.
