Veteran Ghanaian coach J. E Sarpong believes Aduana Stars adventure in the CAF Champions League will be crushed in Algeria when they face ES Setif in the second leg of the qualifying round.
The Fire Boys will go into the return encounter with a slender advantage after defeating the Algerian side 1-0 at the Nana Agyemang Badu II Park last week.
And just like many Ghanaians, Sarpong says Yusif Abubakar men’s failure to win convincingly at their stomping ground in the first leg will haunt them in Algeria.
“It’s over for Aduana Stars in the Caf Champions League. We have to be honest and tell them the truth,” Sarpong told Goal.
“For a club to progress to the group stage of the competition, they must win the first leg with a huge margin but what did we see in Dormaa Ahenkro? It took them a second-half penalty before they could even defeat Setif and per their records, they have not scored any away goal in the competition.”
“There’s no way Setif will allow Aduana to eliminate them at their backyard especially when they have the chance to use all available means to qualify,” he added.
