Kumasi Asante Kotoko FC will face FC San Pedro of Ivory Coast in the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup in the final elimination match.
Asante Kotoko, who was knocked out by Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia in the Total CAF Champions League will have another opportunity to redeem in the Confederation Cup themselves against another formidable side in FC San Pedro.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF), today held a draw for the group stage of the Total CAF Champions League and the final elimination match for the CAF Confederation Cup 2019/2020 today in Cairo, with interesting pairings setting the tone for the next phase of the competition.
Kumasi Asante Kotoko will seek to make it to the group stage of the Confederation Cup for the second year running as they did last season and hopefully make it out of the group.
