Former Asante Kotoko attacker Kwame Opoku is backing Hearts of Oak to eliminate Algeria side JS Saoura in the CAF Confederation Cup play-off round.
Opoku believes the Phobians – who were dumped from the Champions League – have the advantage over their Algerian opponents.
“I see that Hearts of Oak have the upper hand over them (JS Saoura). This is because Saoura will come to Ghana for the first leg match and they will not open up, they will not let the game flow in order not to concede plenty goals. And so we have the advantage. We must make sure to kill the game here else it will be very difficult over there” Opoku told Kumasi-based Ashh FM.
