CAF Confed Cup: Ashgold to face Burkinabe side Salitas FC

Ashgold are set to play the Burkina Faso giants in the last week of November in the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup

Ghana Premier League side Ashantigold have been drawn against Burkinabe side Salitas FC in the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup.

This was revealed in Monday’s draw held in Cairo.

While the match date has not been set, the first leg of the ties will be played on the weekend of 27 to 29 November 2020. The second leg is scheduled for the weekend of 4 to 6 December 2020.

The Miners will play at home in the first leg at Obuasi before traveling to Burkina Faso for the second leg at the Stade de 4 Aout in Ouagadougou.

In the event Ashantigold wins, the Miners will face the winner of the tie between Sudanese side Alamal Atbara and KVZ Sports Club of Zanzibar in the first round of the competition.

Salitas have enjoyed relative success in recent times, becoming the first Burkinabe side to qualify for the group stages of CAF inter-club competition in the 2018/2019 campaign.

In 2018, Salitas won both the Burkina Faso Cup and Super Cup trophies.

The Porcupine Warriors will travel to Mauritania for the first leg of the tie on the weekend of 27 to 29 November, 2020. The second leg of the tie is expected to be played on the weekend of 4 to 6 December.

If Asante Kotoko are able to see off eight-time Mauritanian champions, Nouadhibou, they will face the winners of the tie between Al Hilal Club of Sudan and Ugandan champions, Vipers SC.

Apart from competing in the CAF Champions League and the MTN FA Cup, Maxwell Konadu’s men will also attempt to win a record 24th Ghana Premier League title. That campaign begins with a game at home with Eleven Wonders on 14th November 2020.
