AC Leopards down Medeama 2-0 in testy CAF Confederation Cup first leg tie

Published on: 20 April 2014

Medeama have their work cut out for them in the CAF Confederation Cup after losing the 2-0 at AC Leopards courtesy two contested penalties in Congo.

The ambitious Ghanaian side have plenty to complained about after Cameroonian referee Aurelien Juenkou Wandji awarded three penalty kicks to the home side.

However, Leopards could only settle on two of the kicks with Tychique Ntela Kalema scoring both goals in each of the half.

Kalema wasted the first effort in early exchanges of the first half but atoned for that miss by scoring the subsequent penalty kicks awarded the host.

Coach Carlos Roberto Paullete was sent off in the dying embers of the game after he protested vehemently against some poor refereeing decisions.

The Mauve and Yellows put up a decent display at the Stade Denis Sassou Nguesso but will have to score three unanswered goals in the return fixture on Sunday April 27 to advance to the group phase of the competition.

Former Black Stars coach Claude Leroy (now coach of Congo Republic ) was in the stands to watch the encounter.

The Tarkwa-based side have managed wins over Panthers of Equatorial Guinea, MAS Fez of Morocco and ZESCO United of Zambia.
