Aduana Stars head coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi has described the pending CAF Confederations Cup match against ASEC Mimosas in Dorma as difficult but not impossible.

ASEC Mimosas are wounded lions going into the game as they were dismantled 4-0 by Raja Casablanca, thus, amassing 3points out of the four games.

The Japanese tactician predicts a very difficult game against ASEC Mimosas due to the position the Ivorians have found themselves but 'the story will definitely be different this time round'

"Qualification to the next stage is possible but it will be difficult because ASEC are a good side just like the other teams in our group.

But the story will definitely be different this time round because I wasn’t the one in charge when they beat Aduana Stars,” he told Graphic Sports Online.
