Hearts of Oak to play Real Bamako in Confederation Cup

Ghana Premier giants Hearts of Oak will face Malian side Real Bamako in the second round of the 2022/2023 CAF Confederations Cup.

Hearts of Oak had a bye in the first round and will now go head to head with Real Bamako.

Samuel Boadu’s team will travel to Mali on the weekend of October 7-9, 2022 for the first leg encounter.

The return leg will be held at the Accra Sports Stadium on the weekend of October 14-16, 2022.

Real Bamako qualified from the first round by beating AS Douanes of Burkina Faso 3-1 on penalties at the Stade Modibo Kéïta in Bamako, after a goalless aggregate score.

The winner of the Hearts and Real Bamako tie will move to the play-off round where they will take on one of the sixteen losers from the CAF Champions League second round.

Hearts of Oak are Ghana’s only representative in Africa following Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s disappointing exit from the CAF Champions League.
