Al Hilal assistant coach Adam Salah Mohammed says his side has no fear of facing Asante Kotoko later today.

The teams will meet in a Matchday 5 CAF Confederation Cup Group C clash at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

The Porcupine Warriors will be looking for revenge against the Blue Wave after a Matchday 1 1-0 defeat in Omdurman last month.

Speaking to Oyerepa FM ahead of the game on Sunday Mohammed said: "We know Asante very well, very respected in Africa, we are here to beat them.”

He also stated that upon their arrival at the Kotoka International Airport, local fans told them they were going to lose by three goals.

"On our way from the airport, the supporters saying they will beat us three [goals to nil] but it won't be easy. We are not afraid, no fears. Hilal is also big in Africa.”

He added: "The weather in Sudan is hot and Ghana is hot, it’s very good for football. We are praying for good a day and a good day for the referee as well.”

Hilal top Group C on seven points and a win in Kumasi will guarantee progression into the quarterfinals. Kotoko, meanwhile, are second on six points, while Zambian duo Nkana and Sesco United completed the group with six and four points respectively.
