Accra Hearts of Oak

Accra Hearts of Oak have won the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League title after drawing 1-1 with Liberty Professionals and second-placed Asante Kotoko losing 2-1 to Bechem United on Sunday afternoon.

The Phobians have opened a 4-point lead at the summit of the league table with a game left to wind up the season.

Hearts of Oak, winners of the 2000 CAF Champions League and 2004 CAF Confederation Cup, have won their first major title since 2009 and are still in contention to annex the MTN FA Cup title in a season that could see them clinch double.

Kotoko failed to close down the points gap between themselves and Hearts of Oak who are their sworn rivals after losing 2-1 at the Nana Ansu Gyeabour Park in Bechem to Bechem United.

Hearts have now moved to 61 points with second-placed Kotoko on 57 while there is only one round of games left to end the Premier League season.

In-form attacker Daniel Afriyie Barnieh headed home the solitary goal of the game in first-half stoppage-time. The 19-year-old ghosted past two Liberty defenders to connect home a teasing corner kick from Salifu Ibrahim.

Liberty clinched a late equalizer to snatch a point from the game through Kwame Paul who connected a cross from the left to give survival hopes to Liberty Professionals.
