AshantiGold striker Fuseini Nuhu is very optimistic his side will advance in the CAF Champions League despite their slim first leg win over MO Bejaia.
The Ghanaian champions needed a 60th minute goal from Joshua Tijani to post a 1-0 win at the Len Clay on Sunday.
Fuseini, who was handed a starting role alongside his twin Alhassan, believes they can finish the job in Bejaia in a fortnight.
“I have had the opportunity to play for the local national team so it wasn’t any big game for me. The result was God’s will, so am not disappointed,” Nuhu said.
“I believe we will qualify in Algeria. M.O Bejaia only came here to defend to rely on counter attacks.
“Next two weeks when we play the second leg tie they will surely open the game. We are sharp and smarter than them, so we will also capitalize on that against them in Algeria.
“The game was a tactical game, the Crabs came to defend a typical Italian style, but we managed to score a goal.
“They will have to score two goals at home and when we travel to Algeria we won’t give them that opportunity.”
