Ghanaian champions Aduana Stars registered a 1-0 victory over Beninois counterparts Buffles FC du Borgou in an international friendly on Wednesday.
The Benin Premier League Champions travelled to the Sunyani Coronation Park where they faced Aduana in the first of two friendlies with Ghanaian sides.
Midfielder Elvis Opoku scored the only goal that separated the two sides.
Buffles FC head straight to Kumasi where they are scheduled to play Caf Confederation Cup campaigners Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Thursday afternoon.
