Hearts of Oak will be locking horns with Algerian side Jeunesse Sportive de la Saoura this afternoon at the Ohene Gyan Stadium in the first leg of the CAF Confederations Cup playoff round

This game is a must win for the 2000 conquerors who will now have to record a huge victory today to keep their hopes of playing in a continental competition this season alive.

The Rainbow Club dropped from the CAF Champions League after suffering a 6-2 on aggregate loss against Moroccan heavyweights Wydad Athletic Club. 
However, they have been very appalling since the commencement of the season as they are yet to grind their first win having drawn three and lost one.
On the other hand, JS Saoura also had a walkover in the first preliminary round before edging out Mauritanian side ASAC Concorde to cruise into this stage.
In the Algerian Ligue 1, they have been impressive after four matches, securing two wins, a draw and a defeat leaving them 4th on the league log with 7 points.
The team arrived in Ghana with 19 players and other contingent last Friday looking set and poised for the epic clash on Sunday 
Coach Samuel Boadu has all his squad that played last week against AshantiGold fit and poised for the game having spent some moments of their preparations in Cape Coast before moving to the capital for the big game.
Lanky lateral, Raddy Ovouka is still unlikely to feature in the game as he still hasn't fully recovered from his injury.
Meanwhile, experience playmaker Gladson Awako also returned into the team's training in the early stages of last week and is very likely he will be available for selection today.
On the opposition end, the Eagles after their arrival, held a night training session at the La McDan Town Park without some of their key players who are all doubts for the game coming up.
