Berekum Chelsea coach Hans Vander Plyum is in confident mood ahead of their first leg fixture of the final qualifying round of the Caf Champions League game against CotonSports on Sunday.
The Ghanaian champions must overpower the plucky Cameroonian side in the two legs to make a historic appearance in group phase of Africa’s elite competition.
The Blues were given reality check last weekend when they surprisingly lost 3-1 at Tema Youth in the Ghana Premier League.
But the fixture against the current Cameroonian League leaders will be a different story at the Golden City Park on April 29 and their Dutch coach is optimistic his charges will qualify to the group phase at the expense of the 2008 losing finalist.
“We’re very confident that we can beat them but keeping our cards close to our chest,” Plyum told GHANAsoccernet.com
“We know they are very physical side and so will try to ensure they don’t concede many goals ahead of the return leg.
“But we have map out a strategy for them and we hope it will work for us.
“I will just all those who gave us the massive support in our game against Raja to come to the stadium in their numbers t support us to victory,”
Chelsea reached this stage after recording a 5-3 aggregate win over Moroccan giant Raja Casablanca.
