CAF CL: Hearts dream shattered after 6:1 humiliation defeat to WAC
Ghanaian giant Accra Hearts of Oak dream of qualifying for the champion league group stage has been thrown in tatters after humiliating 6- 1 defeat at the hands of Wydad Athletic Club(WAC) in Morocco on Sunday evening.
Last week Sunday, Hearts hosted the Moroccan giant at the Accra Stadium which ended 1-0 in favour of the phobians.
Traveling to North African country with a goal difference was a hard nut to crack, but the Coach assures the supporters of getting some respectable scoreline.
WAC started the match with high intensity and got the first goal in 5 minutes, before getting the second after 3minutes.
The Moroccan giant never showed any sign of relent after the two quick goals. They kept piling the pressure until they got their 3rd goal in the 20th minute.
They made it four in the 38th minute through a penalty before the end of the first 45 minutes.
The second 45minutes begun with the same intensity and pressure from WAC, which led to then 5th goal in the 49th minute inside the second half and the 6th goal in the 61st minute before Patrick Razak got the consoling goal in the 84th minute for the Phobians.
WAC has now qualified to the group stage of the CAF Champions League with 6-2 on aggregate.
Meanwhile, despite the humiliation defeat, Hearts will now drop to the second tier of the African club competition, Confederation Cup.
