Ashatigold defender Richard Osei Agyemang is confident the Miners will triumph over their Moroccan side RS Berkane in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Ashgold are expected to take on Berkane in the next stage of the competition after eliminating Equatoguinean side Akonangui FC in the preliminary stage.

RS Berkane made it to the finals of the Confedrations cup last season but lost out to Egyptian side, Zamalek.

Despite the feat chalked by the Moroccan side, Richard Agymang is still convinced the Miners will seal through to the next round of the tournament.

“We will beat RS Berkane, some of their players are being mentioned all over and that they were finalist last year, but that withstanding we will beat them,” Osei Agyemang told reporters on Sunday.

“We want qualification hence we will make sure to qualify here in Ghana before the return encounter in Morocco.

“Our target is our next game because you can’t aim too high whereas you have a game at hand , so for now we focus on eliminating RS Berkane.”

Ashgold defeated their regional rivals Asante Kotoko to win the BK Edusei Cup on Sunday as part of their preparations for the game.
