Ghana’s representative in Africa club competition, Asante Kotoko and AshGold will be in action over the weekend as they seek to book a place in the next round of the competition.
Asante Kotoko held Mauritanian side FC Nouadibou to a 1-1 draw away in the first leg of the Caf Champions League preliminary round.
The Porcupine Warriors scored first in the game through Osman Ibrahim and the home side got the equalizer through a dubious penalty awarded by the referee.
AshGold also failed to score against Burkinabe side Salitas in the first leg of the Caf Confederation Cup preliminary round at the Len Clay Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The two sides have been preparing ahead of the reverse fixture with Asante Kotoko hosting FC Nouadibou on Saturday December 5, 2020 at the Accra Sports Stadium whilst AshGold play away to Salitas on Sunday 6 December, 2020 in Ouagadougou.
Speaking ahead of the game AshGold captain, Amos Addai is confident his side can still qualify to the next round.
“We can also do something away at Salitas. It will depend on our determination and work hard. We must try and score a goal over there. The game is still open since we didn’t concede at home.", he said in an interview.
“Heading into the game we were worried about our defense but we didn’t concede and our attack couldn’t score but we are going to work hard in the second leg”.
“It’s going to be a do and die affair in the second leg and we are confident on securing qualification in the second leg”, he added.
