Asante Kotoko to begin Caf Champions League journey on Sunday

The Porcupine Warriors will face off with Sony Nguema of Equatorial Guinea at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium

Ghana’s league champions Kumasi Asante Kotoko will open their account in the 2013 Caf Champions League this weekend at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

The Porcupine Warriors will take on Sony de Ela Nguema from Equatorial Guinea in the first round of the preliminary matches.

Kotoko are making a return to the elite continental football and will be targeting a successful campaign in the preliminary round in order to end their seven-year wait for an appearance at the group stage.

The 1970 and 1983 African champions have had their preparations boosted with the return of Black Stars defender Rashid Sumaila who was in South Africa a few days back for trials with Mamelodi Sundowns.
