Black Weekend For Ghana Football: Asante Kotoko SC, AshantiGold Suffer Heavy Defeats In CAF Inter Club Championships

Ghana’s hope of having two representatives in the 2019/20 CAF inter-clubs championship took a nosedive with heavy defeats for the country’s flagship teams in their respective competitions.

Ashgold SC were made to pay for their two avoidable goals conceded at the Len Clay in an emphatic 2-0 defeat away to RS Berkane whiles Asante Kotoko’s disjointed outing against Etiole du Sahel saw them dropping out of the CAF Champions League.

With a healthy 2-0 lead from the first leg staged at the Baba Yara stadium, Asante Kotoko SC failed to free themselves from lopsided officiating and rugged performances to extend their champions league group stages hoodoo into 14 years.

Three unanswered goals from 10 men Etiole Sportive Sahel ousted the Porcupine Warriors from Africa’s premier club football. The 2 times CAF Champions league winners will now have to fight a place in the group stages of the CAF confederation at the play off stages.

Having posted a healthy 3-0 lead in the first leg of their confederation cup, Ashgold SC ceded two quick but avoidable goals in the five goal threat ahead of their trip to Morocco for RS Berkane elimination showdown.

Two goals from their North African opposition turned the table on its head to send Ricardo Rocha and his men packing out of the continental competition.

Ashgold SC will now have to come and prepare for the upcoming 2019/20 Ghana Premier league whiles Asante Kotoko SC still have the second chance of staying in Africa if they can seal a place in the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
