Medeama face Zesco test in Confederation Cup

Medeama will be hoping their fairytale run in the CAF Confederation Cup continues this weekend against Zambia's Zesco United at home.

The Mauves, Ghana's only side remaining in continental competition will be up against the three-time Zambian champions with the first leg on Sunday at the Essipong Stadium.

It could prove a tough task for Medeama, who are making their continental debut. 

And their Peruvian coach Carlos Roberto Paulette is determined to maintain their fine run that saw them eliminate Panthers of Equatorial Guinea and former Confederation Cup title-holders Morocco's Moghreb Fes in the previous rounds.

But Paulette will need firepower from his squad in the absence of the suspended in-form striker Kabiru Moro.

To achieve their aim, Medeama and Paulette must beat a strong Zesco opposition and then await whichever Champions League side that drops to the Confederations Cup in the final qualifying round.
