AshantiGold have been drawn against Biurkinabe club Salitas in the preliminary round of the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup.

The Miners will welcome Salitas to the Obuasi Len Clay stadium for the first leg between November 27-29.

The reverse fixture will take place in Burkina Faso on the weekend of December 4-6.

The winner will play either Sudanese side Alamal Atbara or KVZ Sports Club of Zanzibar in the next round.

Ashgold were chosen by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to represent the country following the cancellation of the 2019/20 season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This will be their third appearance in the competition and they are confident of reaching the group stage, which is usually referred to as the money zone.

The former Ghanaian champions have not gone past the first round in the previous two attempts.

For Salitas, they made history in 2019 when they became the first Burkina Faso club to reach the group stage.
