2020 Cameroon premier division runners-up Cotonsport of Garoua have been handed Niger champions AS SONIDEP as opponents for the last knockout round in the CAF Confederation Cup.
SONIDEP has only existed for 6 years having been created only in 2014.
This will be the second participation in the Confederation Cup for the team, the last one dating as far back as 2016 , when they were ousted at the preliminary round.
AS SONIDEP are however dropping from a relatively bigger CAF club competition (Champions League), where they were hammered 5-0 by Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the last knockout round.
Placed side-by-side with Cotonsport, pundits have tipped the Cameroon side to make light work of SONIDEP.
