Exclusive: The Hunters striker believes they will record a good result over their Algerian opponents to give their continental campaign a flying start

Bechem United striker Amed 'Simba' Toure insists they will hand Algerian side MC Alger a heavy defeat in the Caf Confederations Cup preliminary round first leg clash at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The 28-year-old, who joined the FA Cup winners as a free agent few months ago, has been in a top form for the side scoring goals with ease in their pre-season friendlies.

Toure has a good knowledge of the competition after previously playing with Asante Kotoko.

“The game against MC Alger cannot be compared to any of local games so we have taken lots of time to do rehearsals on tactics and formations,” Toure told Goal.

“Although, some of our players are new to the task, there are others who have also participated at this level with different clubs and have shared their experiences with them so we are battle ready.

“Everyone at the club is well prepared and I am confident that we will carry the day with a respectable scoring on Sunday. We want a scoreline that will give us an edge over them ahead of the return encounter in Algeria.”

He added: “In competitions like this, you have to prevent the opponents to score an away goal and also try to utilise the chances that will come your way because the elimination is decided on aggregate scoreline not on points.”

Bechem will travel to Algiers next weekend and the winner after the two legs will take on the winner between Akanda FC from Gabon and DR Congo's Renaissance du Congo in the first round in next month.
