Coton Sport leave Yaoundé for Ghana ahead of Kotoko clash

Cameroonian Champions Coton Sport de Garoua have left Yaoundé for Ghana ahead of the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup game against Asante Kotoko.

Coton Sport left Cameroon on Thursday and are expected to touch down at the Kotoka International Airport in the afternoon before leaving for Kumasi, where the game will take place.

The Cameroonian giants lost the first leg to Kotoko 3-2 and have a difficult task of overturning the result in Kumasi on Sunday.

Coton Sports would have to beat Asante Kotoko by a two-goal margin to eliminate the Porcupine Warriors.

Having dropped from the CAF Champions League, the Elite One Champions wanted to redeem themselves with the second tier competition on the continent.

Meanwhile for Asante Kotoko, this is a huge opportunity for them to reach the group stages of the confederation cup since 2008.
