Aduana Stars coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi admits they face an uphill battle in their trip to Kinshasa to face Congolese giants AS Vita Club in the group stage of Caf Confederation Cup on Sunday.

The Ghanaian champions recorded their first victory in Group A thanks to a 2-1 scoreline and have moved two places up to second on the log. 

They must avoid defeat in the reverse fixture to stand a better chance of picking one of the two slots for the next stage.
