Tough Confed Cup draw for Aduana Stars

Ghana Premier League (GPL) champions, Aduana Stars have been drawn in a tricky Group A pairing in the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Confederations Cup draw.

The Dormaa based club has been drawn in Group A, with three other former continental champions including Moroccan club Raja Casablanca (1989, 1997, 1999 Champions League winners), Ivorian giants ASEC Mimosas (1998 Champions League winner) and AS Vita (1973 Champions League winner) Club of DR Congo.

Aduana Stars are the only inexperienced side in the group many considers as the ‘group of death’. The ‘Ogya Boys’ qualified to this stage by a 7-3 aggregate score line over Fosa Juniors of Madagascar.

Group B contains Al Masry (Egypt), UD Songo (Mozambique), RS Berkane (Morocco), and Al Hilal Omdurman (Sudan) with Group C having Djoliba AC (Mali), Williamsville AC (Cote d’Ivoire) and Enyimba FC (Nigeria). Group D pits Rayon Sports (Rwanda), Gor Mahia (Kenya), Young Africans (Tanzania) and USM Algiers (Algeria).

Aduana Stars will open their campaign away to Ivorian giants ASEC Mimosas on May 6 in Group A and

host Moroccan side Raja Casablanca 10 days later.

Aduana will end the first round with another home match against DR Congo side AS Vita Club on July 18.

Two weeks later, they will travel to Kinshasa for the return leg on July 29 before hosting ASEC on August 19.

Their final Group match will be on the road against Raja Casablanca on August 29.–GNA
