Staying hopeful is not only what this Asante Kotoko need, but also the attitude that can drive them into a memorable Confederations Cup group stages since 2008. And Asante Kotoko look well greased to achieving that feet in this season's Africa Club Competition.

After a remarkable outing in Cameroon that saw the two-times Africa champions run over Coton Sport by 3-2 in Yaoundé, there should be some sort of explicable zealousness from Asante Kotoko that would keep their fans in tense ahead of the group stage games.

Regardless of the results unexpectedly chalked by the Ghanaian giants away from home last Sunday, it will only look good for Asante Kotoko to assume this encounter at Baba Yara Sports Stadium as a fresh game altogether so as to eschew complacency and boastfulness that can derail them from achieving their goal of reaching the group stages.

As it is by far contrary to Asante Kotoko's away performance recently in Africa, the team has always exhibited lacklustre and palpitating display at home after getting the results on the road.

Coton Sport are coming into the second leg with renewed hopes and special ideas to get the results just like Asante Kotoko had it away from home knowing how Asante Kotoko struggle to attain good results at home. That will make this encounter an all purposeful one for both side.

However, the Cameroonian side do not have a reputable and history playing against Ghanaian sides, and coming against Asante Kotoko who they lost to some 15 years ago by 3-2 at the same venue, Coton Sport should be on a complete rehearsals on how to mastermind a way to eliminate Asante Kotoko in Kumasi.

With both side having an almost a full and an expected squad to square off for glory in Kumasi, there should be an entire football sell out between both sides just like we saw last week in Yaoundé with flurry of goals.

Charles Kwablan Akonnor will be surely become a renowned hero and will aggrandize his status in the club's history if he qualifies the team into the group stages which he has one foot there, with the fact that he took the team only 3 months ago.

Asante Kotoko and Coton Sport game will be kicked off at exactly 3:00 PM at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
