The Black Meteors will enter the game with a 2-1 lead and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who inspired the team to victory with brace in the first leg at the Estadio du Zimpeto believes their away win has reduced the pressure on them but they should guard against be complacency.
“It’s not easy to pick three points from away games in African competitions so we are very happy. Our mentality towards that game was at least picking a point but by the grace of God we were able to pick up all the three points,”
“We are very excited and it has also reduced the pressure on us. Asante Kotoko recently suffered defeat to Kadiogo after they had pick an away win but the team came and won,” he said on Peace FM as monitored by footballghana.com
“I think we all here are local guys only one player is foreign based which is Philemon Baffour. So the incident that happened in Kumasi if we haven’t seen at least we have heard a bit about it. It tells us not to be complacent, not to relax because anything can happen on the field of play,”
“And football as a game has developed there is no…you cant suggest or conclude unless the game is over. They (supporters) should come in their numbers to the stadium this is where we need them. Come and support us and enjoy the good football of Black Meteors,”
The Phobian star, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh was the hero for Ghana in the first leg as he scored brace in the 63rd and the 76th minute to snatch victory for Coach Ibrahim’s side.
