Kotoko drawn against AS Setif in CAF Confederation Cup play-off

Asante Kotoko have been drawn against Algerian outfit AS Setif in the CAF Confederation Cup play-off.


The Porcupine Warriors were knocked out of the CAF Champions League after they failed to raise a team against Al Hilal following a COVID-19 test which proved eight of their players tested positive of the virus.

They were declared 2-0 losers and got knocked out 3-0 on aggregate because they had lost 0-1 at home to the Sudanese giants.
