Kumasi Asante Kotoko have departed Ghana for Algeria, a little over 24 hours before their CAF Confederation Cup group stage play-offs return leg tie against ES Setif.
Kotoko left Accra at 02:00 GMT Saturday via a Ghana Airforce chartered flight with a 21-man squad.
The Ghanaian giants have been faced with some challenges in their travel arrangements – from finances to mode of flights which delayed the trip until early Saturday morning when they eventually left.

The Porcupines trail with a 2-1 deficit from a first-leg defeat at home against the Algerians last week.
The second leg is scheduled for Stade 8 Mai 1945 in Sétif at 17:00 GMT on Sunday, February 21.
Kumasi-based journalists, Richard Berko, posted an image of the Ghana Airforce plane the team left to Algeria with in wishing them safe travels.
