The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has appointed Benin match officials for this weekend's Orange CAF Champions League involving Kumasi Asante Kotoko and ASC Linguere of Senegal.

Information gathered by GNA Sports from the CAF Secretariat in Cairo, Egypt, indicates that 43-year old Crespin Aguidissou will direct affairs from the middle.

He will be assisted by compatriots Prosper Padanou and Zountcheme Adrien Jacques with Takoradi-based Cecil Fleischer as the fourth referee.

The 'Porcupine Warriors' will host the Senegalese debutants in the second leg clash of the preliminary round of the League on Sunday at the Ohene Djan Stadium, Accra.

Aguidissou, who obtained his FIFA badge in 1998, is widely ranked as the next in command in the list of Beninois match officials after the globally acclaimed Coffi Codjia.

The referee's last game involving a Ghanaian team was in October 2009 when Liberty Professionals beat Etoile Filante 5-2 in a WAFU Cup match.

Referee Aguidissou was also at the centre of affairs during the Olympic qualifier involving the Black Meteors of Ghana and their Algerian counterparts in February 2004 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

The Meteors won 2-0 courtesy goals from Ishmael Addo and Kwadwo Poku and went on to qualify for the Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
