Impressive Medeama advance in CAF Confederation Cup despite MAS FEZ defeat
Medeama have progressed to the next stage of the CAF Confederation Cup despite losing 2-1 at Moroccan side Maghreb de Fez on Saturday to qualify in an impressive 4-2 aggregrate scoreline.
The ambitious Ghanaian side put up brave performance at the Fez stadium to qualify on a 4-2 aggregrate win.
The home side started the game brilliantly and put their opponent under lots of pressure in search of early goals.
However a well calculated and composed display away from home ensured they qualified by a respectable 4-2 aggregrate win.
The financially-stricken North African side scored first in the first half but failed to add to their tally until the end of the first session
The visitors pulled the match needed equalizer in the second half through Kabiru Moro’s deflected effort.
The Moroccan side scored their second goal of the night courtesy Senegalese international Diallo but Medeama held their verve to qualify to the next phase of the competition.
The Tarkwa-based side did all the work during the first leg where they hammered their opponent 3-0 at the Sekondi stadium last week and needed to keep their cool in the reverse fixture.
Peruvian trainer Carlos Roberto Paullete has crafted a formidable squad since taken over two months ago and on course to make history.
Medeama are determined to navigate their path in their debut season on the continent and are inching closer to the group phase of the competition.
