A low-spirited Liberian Football Champions LPRC Oilers will Sunday play host to enterprising Togolese Football Champions Asko de Kara in CAF’s Champions League First Leg game at the ATS in central Monrovia.
The Oilers are going into the match on a low profile, as the Liberian Football Champions have had a quiet preparation, unlike their Sunday visitors.
There are reports that Oiler’s preseason has been pool with no news of big signings or competitive friendly games.
The morale and spirit in the Liberian champions camp vanished since the last day of the local league.
To make matters worst for Oilers, they will have no supporters to give them the cheers that could ignite that game spirit as the game will be played behind closed doors.
The LFA in a statement less than 48 hours to the game said there will be no spectators and only 15 journalists will be allowed to the game.
The Oilers will have a tough match on Sunday against the Asko de Kara who has had a very good preseason and preparations for the away fixture.
Asko de Kara has played several international club friendlies and signed several new faces to strengthen their squad.
The Togolese Football Champions wrapped up their preparations Monday with a 1-0 win against Ghanian Champions Hearts of Oaks in Lome.
The report says Asko de Kara’s hope of progressing to the next round of the Champions League received a huge boost after several prominent citizens and businesses in Lome pledged their support to the Togolese Football Champions.
The Togolese team is in Monrovia for serious business, but it is not clear how the home side will manage them.
