Al Hilal host Asante Kotoko in the second leg of the CAF Champions League on Wednesday.

The Blue Waves went to Accra Sports stadium and defeated the Ghanaian giants two weeks ago putting them a better position to advance to the next stage of the competition, but fate will be decided this Wednesday in Omdurman.


With a place in the group stage of the CAF Champions League at stake, here’s how the Porcupine Warriors should line up.

Felix Annan (GK) – Annan will return to the XI in his biggest test in a Kotoko shirt yet. A good performance against Al Hilal could do wonders for his stock.
Christopher Nettey (RB) - Lack of genuine rotation option means Nettey keeps his place, but Kotoko can always rely on him to put in an impressive defensive shift.
Abdul Ganiyu (CB) - Amid the flurry of rotation throughout the team, the Kotoko technical team cannot do without their buccaneering and defensively sound centre-back for a single minute.
Wahab Adams (CB) – The experienced defender is expected to fill the void left by Habib Mohammed. He edge past Mubarik Yussif at the heart of the Kotoko defence.
Ibrahim Imoro (LB) - Imoro has been playing some of his best football this season. The threat of Patrick Asmah pushing him for his place has no doubt contributed; Imoro starts on Wednesday and will provide an attacking outlet for the Porcupine Warriors.
Kwame Adom Frimpong (DM) – He is gradually staking his claim in this Kotoko side and will no doubt become the enforcer yet again versus Al Hilal
Latif Anabila (DM) - He is a virtual certainty in the starting lineup when fit- and even sometimes when he isn’t. He starts ahead of Sarkodie.
Emmanuel Gyamfi (RM) - Gyamfi offers Kotoko a more clinical finish on the counter attack and must really be at his best to give Kotoko the all important victory.
Fabio Gama (AM) – The Brazilian made his Kotoko debut in league match against Medeama SC. With the few minutes saw of him, his talent cannot be doubted. This is a game for Gama to prove his worth for Kotoko, or boost his stock a little further.
Naby Keita (LM) - Has been out of the team this season, but with Godfred Asiamah not shining on the left, the Guinean should be given the chance to threaten the Hilal right flank.
Kwame Opoku (ST) – The former Nkoranza Warriors forward hasn’t been scintillating for Kotoko, but has performed admirably enough. Put back onto his favourite position in attack, he’ll be desperate to increase his tally of goals for the club.
