When Horoya AC of Guinea takes on Egyptian newcomers Pyramids FC at the 2019-20 Total CAF Confederation Cup semifinal, eyes will be on Ocansey Mandela.
For the Burkinabé, this match against the Egyptians is an event not to be missed. Talking to CAFOnline.com, Mandela promised to "give everything" to reach the final of the competition.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, CAF has opted for a Final Four to end the 2019-20 Total CAF Confederation Cup season. It is in this context that Horoya and Pyramids lock horns in a single match on 20 October 2020 at the Mohamed V stadium in Casablanca.
Despite the fact that Horoya is deprived from some key players, after the departure of Aristide Bancé and the injuries of Baffour Sébé, Samassékou or even Alseny Camara "Cantona", the Guinean champions can count on the return of their talisman Ocansey Mandela. Absent for more than four months, Ocansey returned to the pitch last August after receiving treatment in France.
