The Black Stars and the Carthage Eagles are set to battle it out for a place in the next round of the continental championship today.
With the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt certainly not short on surprises, an interesting match awaits at the Ismailia Stadium where four-time champions Ghana face one-time winners Tunisia in the last Round of 16 fixture.
The bookmakers have tipped the Black Stars to get one over the Carthage Eagles as aside from Ghana’s higher historical status, their emergence as Group F winners ahead of Cameroon sets them as a fearsome side.
However, the Line ups of the black stars have been released but Asamoah has been left out of the first Eleven.
