AshantiGold are hoping to qualify to the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup as they prepare for a battle with Burkinabe side Salitas in the second leg of the preliminary round on Saturday.

The Obuasi-based side hosted Salitas at the Len Clay Sports Stadium in the previous weekend but were unable to find the net and the game ended with a 0-0 scoreline.

This means Ashgold need nothing short of a win or a scoring draw against the 2018 Coupe du Faso winners to move one step closer to the group stage of the competition.

What is the kickoff time?

The match will start at exactly 18:00 GMT.

Current form of both teams

Team news
