Ghana’s representatives in next year’s continental football now know their opponents.
Last season’s premier league champions, Medeama are paired against Nigerian club, Remo Stars Sporting Club with Dreams FC who claimed the FA Cup, up against Guinean club, Milo FC in the first preliminary round of the competition.
Rivers United goalkeeper, Seidu Mutawakilu says Medeama SC will have it tough against Remo Stars.
“Medeama will not get it easy because you know the Ghana and Nigeria our style of play is the same and from there we have the bragging right.
“Ghana and Nigeria any time we meet it is tough and everybody will want to win to have the bragging right or the power over the other country.
“So Medeama will not get it easy and you know Africa football is always tough and secondly Medeama need to prepare very well.
“Remo Stars last season played in the CAF Confederation Cup and they are in the CAF Champions League this season.
“So they want to use the experience they got in the Confederation to progress to the group stage because every club in Nigeria which plays in Africa wants to get to the group stage to make money and to market players.
“Remo Stars have that experience so Medeama need to take the first leg very seriously and get like two or three goals to boost their away game in Remo.” Mutawakilu Seidu told Radio Gold Sports.
The games will kick off in the weekend of August 18-20 with the reverse fixture taking place a week later.
Medeama will face Guinean club, Horoya Athletic Club if they scale the double leg with Dreams fc coming up against the winner between AS Douanes of Niger and FC Kallon of Sierra Leone.
