Jimmy Cobblah has described the encounter as a difficult one, insisting the goal Benin got in Ghana is crucial for their confidence level.
“It is not going to be easy at all, the second leg will be a difficult one because they will be motivated after scoring here in Ghana,” he told the media.

“They got a goal here which they will be counting on ahead of the second leg and so we must also do everything possible to prevent them from scoring there.

The Black Satellites head coach described the strategy he would use to secure three points for Ghana.

 “I know they will open up over there because they will like to score more goals and we will also capitalize on that because I have sharp attackers.”

The Black Satellites left Ghana on Thursday morning 9 August 2018 for Benin ahead of the clash in the African Youth Championship.
