- CAF Champions League Futaa preview
- Asec Mimosas vs Lobi Stars
- Saturday, 19 January
- Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny, Abidjan.
Saturday’s battle promises to be a fascinating day two event in Group A. Ivorian hosts, Asec, plot to recover from a 5-2 battering from Wydad Casablanca on day one.
On the opposite end will be pumped-up visitors, Lobi, who might still be pinching themselves after producing a 2-1 upset over 2016 Champions Mamelodi Sundowns last week.
What are the coaches saying
Asec’s Amani Yao
"We tried to work to erase our mistakes, the mistakes we made in Rabat, so that we can try to be successful on Saturday," Yao said.
"We will try to approach this game well, whether in attack or defence. We will have to be effective in front of goal."
Lobi’s Solomon Ogbeide
“We haven’t won anything yet but we can now build on the victory against Mamelodi Sundowns to focus on the next game against ASEC.
“We have a good spirit, and remain positive going for the away game against ASEC and we are going to take the game to them in Abidjan," Ogbeide concluded.
