The striker admits how difficult it would be for the Yellow and Black to progress in Caf Confederation Cup

Asec Mimosas striker Amed Toure believes they may likely drop out of the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup.

The Ivorian club will face Ghana representatives Aduana Stars in Dormaa Ahenkro on August 18.

They boast of just three points after four games and sit four points behind leaders Raja Casablanca with two matches remaining.

The Burkinabe international says it's near impossible to shock Aduana at home to brighten their chances of making it out of Group A.

"We believe it's impossible for us to win against Aduana Stars in Dormaa Ahenkro, not to even talk about qualification to the next stage," Toure told Hello FM.

"Even if we are able to win this game, it is still highly impossible to progress because the next game is against Vita Club at home. And a win from that game cannot see us through unless the results in the game between Raja Casablanca and Aduana in Morocco favours us.

"Mathematically, we still have a chance but it's virtually over for us although anything can happen in football," he added.

Asec have set sights on making impact in next season's Caf Champions League, according to Toure.

"The club's top hierarchy has told the technical team and players that we should focus on next season's Champions League," he said.

"We want to use the remaining games to correct our mistakes and build on it to make an impact next season to make the fans happy."

Toure spent several years in Ghana playing for the likes of Asante Kotoko, Kessben FC and Bechem United.
