Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC will commence the 2022/23 Ghana Premier League season with the Super-Clash against bitterest rivals Accra Hearts of Oak at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday afternoon, 25th September, 2022.
The league is currently in the third round but the champions missed out in the opening fixtures due to their African campaign which was halted last week following their painful exit.
The Porcupine Warriors left their supporters in a state of despair and catastrophe after bowing out of the CAF Champions League and will look to redeem themselves with nothing but a win this time around.
Also, Hearts of Oak have only a point in their opening two matches which doesn’t look impressive at all and are also hoping to stun their rivals to make it up to their fans.
Coach Seydou Zerbo and his men suffered a very painful elimination to Burkinabe side RC Kadiogo last week via penalty shootouts in Kumasi- a tie they had nipped on youngster Isaac Oppong’s lone goal to finish victors of the first leg in Cotonou.
However, the Rainbow Club have also had a jittery start to the new season having picked just a point from the two matches honoured. They lost narrowly to Aduana Stars on the opening day before pouncing on Konadu Yiadom’s late header to earn a point against regional rivals Great Olympics.
The two clubs engaged each other on three occasions last season, the first leg in the league finished goalless. Hearts of Oak won 2-1 to win the President Cup before subsequently losing the return fixture by 1-0 in Kumasi.

Asante Kotoko will miss the service of Justice Blay and Sherif Mohammed, all due to injuries.
Ivorian import Serge Zeze has been cleared and will be eligible to partake in today’s game.
Just and when many thought marksman, Franck Mbella was going to stay, he’s left to Al Masry SC in Egypt and is most likely his compatriot George Mfegue will also follow suit.
In the camp of Hearts of Oak, Yassan Ouatching- who has started in their last two matches has nursed his injury and would be available for selection.
Nurudeen Abdul Aziz is out alongside Amankwah Baafi who has also been ruled out.
New captures Prince Nana Kwasi Darmang and Congolese international Linda Mtange are also out due to ITC issues.
