The Ghana club have dropped to the Confederation Cup after CAF confirmed that Sudan side Al Hilal have progressed to the Group Stage of the Champions League at the expense of Asante Kotoko after Covid-19 row.

This came after the African football governing body, CAF on January 7, announced the teams that have made it to the Group Stage of the 2020/21 CAF Champions League. 

Kotoko's CAF Champions League return leg against Al Hilal in Omdurman was called off.

The game which was expected to be played on January 6, 2021, was called off after Kotoko failed to raise the required number of players due to Covid-19 positive cases.

The Ghanaian giants were rocked by positive cases in the team after eight players and some officials tested positive for the virus.
