CAF Champions League: Asante Kotoko to host Al Hilal in first leg on Dec 23

Asante Kotoko will face Sudan side Al Hilal in the second preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

The first leg is scheduled between 22-23 December 2020 and the reverse fixture on the 5-6 January 2021.

The Porcupine Warriors progressed from the preliminary round to this stage without kicking a ball after Mauritanian side FC Noaudibou failed to raise a team for the second leg encounter due to coronavirus infections.

CAF in a statement stated Asante Kotoko progressed at the expense of FC Nouadibou because the latter failed to raise a team.

“The match was not played because the Mauritanian team could not meet the minimum number of players required by CAF due to the positive cases of COVID in the team. As a result, FC Nouadhibou were disqualified and Asante Kotoko automatically qualifies for the next round to meet Al Hilal”.

Asante Kotoko will first host the Sudanese giants here in Ghana at the Accra Sports Stadium in the first leg before heading to North Africa for the second leg next year.

Meanwhile, CAF has decided to allow teams to register more players for the competition due to the COVID-19 affecting clubs from being able to raise teams for a game.

“It should be noted that for these competitions, in order to deal with COVID19 challenges, CAF decided to allow each team to increase the maximum number of players from 30 to 40 players. Registrations are currently closed and will re-open from January 10 to January 31”, the continent’s governing body said in a statement.
