Benin Premier League side Les Buffles du Borgou will play two more International friendlies ahead of taking Sierra Leone outfit FC Kallon in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup preliminary next month.
The Benin champions will take on Togolese Premier Champions ASKO de Kara in Kara on Thursday before facing Association Sportive Nationale de la Nigelec of Niger at the Omnisports Stadium in Parakou on Sunday.
Following the above test matches, Buffles du Borgou will commence their Interclub competition as host against their Sierra Leonean counterparts FC Kallon on 11th September in Cotonou before the second leg in Liberia on the 17th of September.
Meanwhile, FC Kallon a few days ago recruited six new acquisitions as the focus on their Interclub competition.
The players are striker Alie Conteh (Nzozi), defender David Janneh (Odeh), midfielder Ibrahim Zaza Kamara (Paff), Kwame Ayeh Nketiah, Donald J Turay and striker Musa Bangura (Casablanca).
In the 2012 CAF Confederation Cup, FC Kallon eliminated Cameroon’s Union Sportive de Douala in the preliminary but faced stiff competition against Nigerian Warri Wolves. They won 2-0 on aggregate in the first round.
A total of 50 clubs will be vying for the top honours to unseat current champions RS Berkane. The Moroccan sports club RS Berkane are the current holders.
Thursday 25/08/2020 – ASKO vs BUFFLES
Sunday 28/08/2020 – BUFFLES vs NIGELEC
