Coton Sport Garoua coach Robert Boivin is expecting a tough duel against Berekum Chelsea in Sunday’s CAF Champions League final qualifying round first leg tie at the Golden City Park.
The Frenchman-who took over from Denis Lavagne three months ago- admits Berekum Chelsea’s firepower is a threat to his side’s ambitions to play in the money zone.
The Ghanaian champions have scored a total of eight goals and yet to concede after beating LISCR 3-0 and the 5-0 thumping of Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca.
But Boivin is playing down Chelsea’s home form.
“I know some details about them like being very physically strong and with high spirit and determination and that is what every big team needs,” Boivin said.
“Chelsea won 5-0 against Raja Casablanca at home but one game is one game and you don’t always win by that scoreline everyday so we are not afraid of that scoreline
“We came here to play and open up and see if we can get a very good results and progress from here.”
He added that: “Our hopes are very high that we will get a good result on Sunday.”
Cotonsport qualified from the previous qualifying round after eliminated Nigerian side Dolphin on the away goal rule after a 2-2 aggregate score line.
