Published on: 01 March 2024

Technical director of Medeama SC, Augustine Evans Adotey has named Algerian club CR Belouizdad as the best and toughest opposition faced in the CAF Champions League campaign.

The Yellow and Mauves failed to progress to the next stage of the CAF’s elite competition after succumbing to a 1-0 defeat on home turf to Al Ahly last weekend.

The Ghanaian champions will take on Belouizdad in their final Group D game at the 5th July 1962 stadium in Algiers on Friday, March 1, 2023.

At the pre-match conference, Adotey picked the Algerian club as the best and toughest opposition faced in their home games.

“Going back to the three games played so far in the competition, I mean my home games, I termed Belouizdad as the best and toughest opposition in our home games. We defeated Belouizdad 2-1, drew 1-1 with Young Africans and suffered1-0 defeat to Al Ahly and I can confidently say Belouizdad gave us tough opposition among the three teams in Kumasi”

Al Ahly are on top of the table ahead of the final group game and being followed by Young Africans, CR Belouizdad in that order.

The Ghanaian champions are bottom after five games with just 4 points.
