Association Sportive Otohô have won their league 3 times in a row and currently lead their league by 15 points.
“They must be a tough team because they have won their league three times in a row and were in the Caf Champions League. Since we are starting away, it will be good if we get a positive result like we did against Al Ahly Merowe. It will also be a good game since our fans are now back in the stadium,” said coach Harrison.
