Former Asante Kotoko striker Ahmed Toure has cautioned the Kumasi-based side about the attacking threats of San Pedro ahead of their playoff clash in the CAF Confederation Cup today, November 3, 2019.
The two teams are set to face off in a play-off round second leg fixture, the first leg having ended in a 1-0 home win for Kotoko. With San Pedro’s home ground in Ivory Coast not meeting requirements for a continental fixture, the match has been moved to Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.
“San Pedro play an attacking game when playing in their home games and they have very dangerous attackers who didn’t travel to Ghana with the team, [for the first leg],” Ahmed Toure told Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
“Kotoko should be ready to face their sharp and dangerous attackers because they are very dangerous when at home. The venue for the game might not favour San Pedro because they are playing the game far from their own home ground. It would be very tough for Kotoko though they are going with a goal advantage,” Ahmed added.
More importantly, the match between Asante Kotoko and San Pedro comes off today, November 3, 2019 at exactly 4:00p.m at Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.
