Medeama Gaffer Prince Owusu Anticipates Tough Challenge From TP Mazembe

Head coach of Medeama SC, Prince Owusu says he is looking forward to a stiff challenge from TP Mazembe ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup epic encounter.

The Yellow and Mauves will play as hosts to the African giants at the Essipong Stadium in Sekondi.

There are no injury concerns for the Ghanaians ahead of the must-win game in front of their home fans.

Owusu is confident of securing a win against the Congolese champions, despite admitting a tough challenge.

“Like I said the last time, our destiny to qualify to the semi-finals is in our hands, and like we did against Young Africans, we need to be flawless against Mazembe because they are a very good side. The team is still preparing for the game on Sunday and I believe that we will get a good result,” he said to Cafonline.com

“Everybody knows the pedigree of Mazembe when it comes to football in Africa and we are aware of the threat they pose as a team even though they have already qualified to the semi-final.

“But that will no matter on Sunday because they will also want to keep their good run in the competition intact so there’s nothing like an easy match. On the contrary, we are envisaging a tough game, but we are confident of winning.

“As it stands now we have the brightest chance of qualifying to the semi-final if we take our chances and attack them like we did in the previous game. I have watched a few clips of their games and even had first-hand information when we played against them in Lubumbashi. Hopefully, we can push for the win and take it up from there.” he added.

TP Mazembe secured an emphatic 3-1 win in the first leg tie in Lubumbashi last June.
