Kotoko FC


Kotoko have lost a couple of players due to injury or suspension, which appears to be a huge challenge. Talisman Songne Yacouba, midfielder Richard Senanu, Maxwell Baakoh and Ismail Abdul Ganiyu will play no part in Sunday’s clash. However, coach Akonnor is confident his current squad can get the job done.

Match Preview

Kotoko found themselves in the current situation following a wasted opportunity to seal a quarterfinal berth in their previous match against Al Hilal of Sudan, who forced the Porcupines to settle for a 1-1 draw in Kumasi. A win would have moved them into the next round of the competition, making their trip for the final matchday an easy one. Now, they must win in Zambia to claim Group C’s other spot for the quarterfinals.

The fact that Zesco are already eliminated does not necessarily make it an easy mission for the Ghanaians. They have no obligation to gift the visitors three points. Kotoko must toil for what they want and impose their will in Zambia. However, the first rule to observe is discipline, mostly at the back. The 3-1 debacle against Nkana is enough lesson to guide the Porcupine Warriors against defensive blunders which could ruin everything they are aspiring for in Africa this term.

Zesco have little or no pressure on their shoulders coming into this game. They want to entertain local fans and play for bonuses. Care must be taken while facing such a team. They would push and try to control the game, using pace and intensity, in an attempt to earn free-kicks, throw balls and corners as much as possible. We shouldn’t forget the revenge factor. Zesco would not want to lose home and away to Kotoko, who won the first leg 2-1.

On paper, the hosts look to be favourites for Sunday’s meeting while the visitors the more determined side. If Kotoko could show character, in line with their current ambition, Zesco would struggle to have their way.
