CAF CC: Aduana defender anticipates tough test against Raja

Aduana Stars defender Paul Aidoo believes Raja Casablanca will be a difficult opponent as they prepare for their second group game in the Caf Confederation Cup on Wednesday.

Aduana are the only side without a point in the group after matchday one following a 1-0 defeat to Asec Mimosas a fortnight ago in Abidjan.

Raja, on the other hand, failed to make the most of home court as they were held to goalless draw by AS Vita Club in Morocco.

"The game against Raja Casablanca promises to be a tougher game than the rest because of their pedigree," Aidoo said in the pre-match interview.

"But we've worked tirelessly throughout last week and are ready for them so I believe things will work in our favour.''

"We need a win badly and the result, regardless the margin will be better for us only if it will hand us the three points at stake. We need the points badly to help us move to the second position," he added.

Congolese side A.S Vita Club will welcome Asec to the Complex Omnisports Stade de Matrys in Kinshasa in the other group game.
