The match day four encounter between Hearts of Oak vs Dreams FC in the Ghana Premier League (GPL) is one of the games of the weekend and it promises to be an exciting contest at the Accra Sports Stadium.
This match kicks off at 3PM Ghana Standard Time on Sunday.
Hearts of Oak could not get their hands on the trophy last season and are looking to rewrite that by challenging for the title this campaign. They have not done much so far but they will be needing a result against the last season’s FA Cup holders to get going.
On the other hand, Dreams FC will be back in GPL action on Sunday. They booked their spot in the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup last weekend and a decent result here could help their cause.

Hearts of Oak vs Dreams predictions
This match is their first meeting of the new GPL season and it is expected by many to be a great game. Here’s our three predictions for the game.
Prediction 1: Hearts of Oak win or draw
The head-to-head stands overwhelming in favour of the hosts. They have won six times, while Dreams FC have just two wins to their credit. It is still early days in the new season but both teams will be hoping to improve their tally on the log. Hearts of Oak have not lost a competitive home fixture against the visitors and we don’t see that happening this Sunday.
Prediction 2: Hearts of Oak to score
Hearts of Oak are fond of scoring at home and the last time they failed to get a goal at home in the GPL was in February. In this particular match up, they have also scored in every home meeting. Dreams FC conceded on the road last time out and it remains a possibility in this match again.
Prediction 3: Over 1.5 Total Goals
Four of the past five matches between Hearts of Oak and Dreams FC have produced 1.5 goals. Given the defensive frailties of the visitors, and for the fact that Hearts of Oak have scored at least two goals in the past three meetings played at the Accra Sports Stadium, two goals should not be a problem.
