But that will be difficult for Sampo to achieve due to Oppong’s continual switch of position with George Mfegue. And that tactical deployment has made Seydou Zerbo’s men a strong team and was evident in the first leg after Oppong switching from the left side to score at the right side of the park within a period. Asante Kotoko are not new to Burkina Faso clubs having met ASFA Yennenga, Etoile Filante and this Sunday’s opposition in the past. Kotoko have always been the dominant force against Burkina sides with the exception of 1979 CAF Cup Winners Cup clash against RC Kadiogo that the Burkina side emerged superior following a 5-3 penalties victory over Kotoko in Kumasi.
Current team captain speaks ahead of game Asante Kotoko captain, Richard Boadu, says his side is ready for the game against RC Kadiogo in the preliminary stage of the CAF Champions League. “Sunday’s game is very important for all of us and we know it’s not going to be easy but we are ready for it, ” Boadu said. “We all read about the history [of Kotoko in the Champions League], however, this is our time to also make history and for us as players, our immediate target is to reach the group stage.
Kotoko had won the first leg in Burkina Faso 1-0 but lost the return leg in Ghana 1-0 and continued to fall on penalty shootout after 90′ minutes. With this season’s game providing the same scenario, the Porcupine Warriors may have to be vigilant and learn from the past come Sunday. Rial Club du Kadiogo will have to be prepared to feel the Baba Yara Stadium phobia that is when the Reds settle in early but the Burkina side could rest for a while when Asante Kotoko have a hard start to the game. The likes of Zesco United, Nkana Red Devils, Etoile Sportive du Sahel, Kano Pillars, San Pedro and ASEC Mimosas have fallen at tomorrow’s match venue in recent years and RC Kadiogo could any exception. A pull of surprise could however also mean a great deal for the Burkina Faso outfit who did similar in 1979 after beating Asante Kotoko at their own backyard. Team News- Asante Kotoko Asante Kotoko have had squad boost for the second leg after the return of some key men who missed the clash in Benin due to injuries.
Kotoko dominated the entire on-and-off-the-pitch incidents in the first leg in Benin. Most African journalists who had travelled to cover the game and other Caf Champions League fixtures at the match venue tipped Kotoko to win and were more concerned about Kotoko’s team news prior to kickoff. And the Ghanaian side outplayed the Burkina Faso side with Isaac Oppong’s late strike completely sinking RC Kadiogo in Benin. The winger has recently received praises from former Hearts of Oak star and Ghanaian International Bernard Don Bortey after the retired footballer labeling Isaac Oppong as his replacement. Isaac Oppong is tipped the start in the second leg clash but faces competition from the likes of Dickson Afoakwa and Stephen Amankona. RC Kadiogo boss Amadou Sampo is having a nightmare of Isaac Oppong and the teenager will be among the few players Sampo will tactically monitor on the pitch.
