Kotoko and Nouadhibou shared the spoils in Mauritania

Asante Kotoko aim to advance to the Caf Champions League first round as they welcome Mauritanian side FC Nouadhibou to the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday for the second leg of the preliminary round clash.

The first leg ended 1-1 in Mauritania last weekend. Kotoko blamed the referee for not winning the match. They scored the opener through Osman Ibrahim but the home side equalised through a dubious penalty.

As Kotoko continue their search for a group stage appearance in the competition since 2006, they will hope to finish off their current opponents on home soil.

What is the kickoff time?

The match will start at exactly 15:00 GMT.
