Ghana winger Edwin Gyasi is set to play for CSKA Sofia in a friendly encounter against Puskas Academy on Sunday after recovering from injury.

The tricky wideman sustained an injury during their mid-season training match against German Bundesliga II side VfL Bochum a fortnight ago.

But the 27-year-old returned to training earlier this week and coach Nestor El Maestro has tipped him to play a part in their today's encounter against Hungarian side Puskas Academy which will played in Malaga.

CSKA Sofia will play two more games against Shanghai Shenhua and Viktoria Plzen before travelling back to Bulgaria to prepare for the second half of the campaign.

Gyasi has been a vital cog for the Bulgarian club as the team lies second on the table after 20 games behind Ludogorets.

He has scored three goals in 17 games in the Bulgarian First League and will be important for the rest of the season for Sofia.
