Berekum Chelsea have the dice loaded against them as they face Ahly Benghazi in Tunis on Sunday in the Champions League first round return leg. 

Their Libyan hosts had to move the match to Tunisia due to the post civil war violence in Libya’s second largest city.

Chelsea must double up efforts if they are to progress to the second qualifying round after a last-gasp goal earned a 1-1 draw.

Ahly Benghazi took the lead before an injury-time equalizer from Obed Owusu avoid

The 2011 Ghanaian champions prepared for this match with a 0-0 draw with Wa All Stars in a First Capital Plus Premier League match.

Head coach Tony Lokko insists his players have what it takes to go through in the qualifiers.

Chelsea are not new to North African opposition after eliminating Moroccan side Raja Casablanca at this stage two years ago en route to reaching the Group stage.

But they do not have the quality they possessed in 2012.
