Medeama coach Carlos Roberto Paullete hopes to complete the double over Zesco United in their CAF Confederation Cup return leg this weekend.

The Ghanaian side will take a healthy 2-0 lead from the first leg recorded at the Sekondi stadium on Sunday.

A goal in each half from Nathaniel Asamoah and Michael Helegbe ensured the debutant recorded their third successive home win in Africa’s inter-club competition.

However, Medeama fans are cautiously optimistic ahead of the reverse fixture due to the impressive performance from the visitors.

Zesco looked a well-organised side and created many decent chances of their own but failed to find the back of the net.

But Medema trainer Carlos Roberto Paullete is unfazed about the challenge confronting his side and says they will be seeking to complete the double over the Zambian side.

“Zesco played very well but don’t take anything away from my boys. They also showed their class,” he told the club’s official website.

“We know the second leg will be tough especially when we’re playing away from home.

“But we have scored in our last two away games and so I’m hopeful we can get a goal there.

“It’s not going to be a walk in the park for us but we’re very determined to go to the next qualifying stage.”

Medeama beat Panthers 2-1 in far away Equatorial Guinea before losing 2-1 at Moroccan side Maghreb de Fes.
