Medeama gear up for Leopards test

Medeama Sporting Club have upped their preparations for their CAF Confederations Cup final playoff tie against AC Leopards of Congo Brazzaville on Sunday.

Medeama have already left Ghana for the Central African country in order to get acclimatized to conditions in the country and according to their spokesperson, Ebenezer Aidoo, the experience of playing through three previous rounds would be essential for success.

“Based on the matches we have played so far, we have experience and we know that the terrain in Congo is very different. That is why we have left Ghana early enough to help us get a few training sessions done ahead of kickoff.”

Medeama are expected to arrive in Congo on Thursday evening and start preparing for the match and Aidoo is confident in the team’s study of their opponents.

“Our coaches and technical team have done their job in terms of analysing Leopards and so I will not say anything more about their work, but we are looking for a good result because the second leg is in Ghana and we can take advantage of the situation at that point.”

Medeama qualified to face AC Leopards after beating Panthers of Equatorial Guinea, MAS Fez of Morocco and ZESCO of Zambia in the preceding qualifying rounds.
