Berekum Chelsea will play their CAF Champions League return
leg against Ahly Benghazi in Tunisia instead of Libya.

The Benghazi-based club have adopted Tunis as their home
ground due to the post civil war violence in Libya’s second largest city.

“We will play the second leg in Tunis instead of Benghazi
because of the situation in Libya,” Berekum Chelsea General Manager Oduro Sarfo
told AfricanFootball.com

“It’s a game that we will have to give more than our best so
we are looking forward to playing in any venue but I can assure you that it’s
going to be in Tunisia instead of Libya.”

This is the second time in this year’s competition Berekum
Chelsea will be facing an opponent on a neutral ground in a second leg

During the preliminary round, Berekum Chelsea had to play FC
Atlabara in Khartoum instead of their favourite ground in Juba.

Ahly Benghazi earned a 1-1 draw in the first leg and are
much-fancied to advance.
