Live Updates: Aduana Stars vs ES Setif (CAF Champions League)

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the match between Aduana Stars and ES Setif at the Nana Agyemang Badu Park.

Aduana Stars will play host to Algerian side ES Setif in the first leg of the final qualifying round of the CAF Champions League at the newly-refurbished Nana Agyemang Badu Park.

Aduana Stars defeated Al Tahaddy 2-1 on aggregate to make it to this stage and have their eyes set on the group stage of the competition with Setif being their last hurdle.

Setif general manager Djihad Boulahdjilet is confident his side will leave Ghana with a favourable result.

"We prefer to win against Aduana in Ghana to give us enough advantage ahead of the second leg," Boulahdjilet told Oyerepa FM during the weekend.

"We watched their match against Libyan club Al Tahady and we are aware that they are a good team. We will give them good match in Ghana and finish them in Algeria.

"We want to make it to the group stages so we've prepared adequately for all circumstances and hope to have a wonderful game on Wednesday but won't leave with a defeat," he added.

With Aduana yet to play a game in the domestic league this season due to legal issues involving Ghana FA and Great Olympics, Setif, on the other hand, have been active in the Algerian Ligue 1, playing 22 matches and conceding 14 goals.

Although Setif are yet to score any away goal in the Caf Champions League this season, Zakaria Haddouche and Akram Djahnit have scored five goals in-between them. Aduana's defence will have to double their effort to stop the duo.

The Ghanaian representatives are without any injury concern. Yahaya Mohammed, who missed the first round fixtures, has recovered and trained with the group last week.

The game starts at 3pm
