CR Belouizdad of Algeria arrived in Ghana on Tuesday evening to prepare for their upcoming game against Medeama SC in the 2023/24 CAF Champions League.
CR Belouizdad, fresh off a convincing 3-0 victory against Tanzanian side Young Africans on their home turf, is gearing up for the showdown against the Ghana champions.
The Algerian team's early arrival in Ghana provides them with ample time to acclimate and fine-tune their preparation for the highly anticipated match.
Medeama, on the other hand, is facing an uphill battle after suffering a 3-0 defeat against Ah Ahly in their opener in Cairo.
With both Young Africans and Medeama languishing at the bottom of the group with no points, Friday's clash takes on added significance as Medeama desperately needs a victory to keep their hopes alive in the competition.
As the teams at the bottom of the group standings, Medeama finds itself in need of a positive result.
Failure to secure three points on Friday would seriously put their chances of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition at risk.
The game will be staged at the Baba Yara Stadium with kick-off scheduled at 16:00GMT.
