Berekum Chelsea will be facing another stern test in the CAF Champions League when they host Al Ahly Benghazi on Sunday. 

The Blues managed progress in the competition following a penalty shootout win over FC Atlabara in the opening preliminary round.

Chelsea surrendered a two-goal lead in the match up against the Sudenese side to push the tie into a penalty shootout.

But the former Ghanaian champions cannot afford such a let off when they come up against the four-time Libyan champions.

Chelsea must however first record a resounding win in the first leg match at the Golden City Park on Sunday.

They must also improve their defensive record especially when on the road due to the notorious away goal rule if they are to make further progress in the competition.

The Blues are now the only surviving Ghanaian club in the CAF Champions League following the early exit of giants Asante Kotoko.

Chelsea are making only their second appearance in Africa’s flagship club competition following their sterling display two seasons ago where they made it all the way to the group phase.
