Ghana's only remaining flagbearers in the CAF Champions League Berekum Chelsea are expected to land in Accra from Sudan on Wednesday morning.

The entire Blues contingent will remain in Accra for their Thursday First Capital Ghana Premier League tie against Liberty Professionals in Dansoman.

The 2012 Champions League revelations secured their place in the next stage of the competition after eliminating South Sudanese side FC Atlabar 3-0 on penalties after drawing 2-2 on aggregate.

However, after their continental success, they now face a stiffer test at the Karl Reindorf Park in Dansoman as they play guest to Liberty Professionals.

Their last game at the venue ended in humiliating disgrace as the Scientific Soccer Lads thrashed them 5-1. And, they are facing the same fate on Thursday.

On their last trip, they arrived just hours before the game and were humiliated and will go into Thursday's tie having rested for just a day and might not have the opportunity to hold a training session before the game.
