Champs League: Kotoko crush out

Ghana league champions Asante Kotoko have been stub out of the Caf Champions League after a 1-0 away defeat to Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors went into the second leg with a step closer to the next round due to their 2-1 first leg advantage. However, the Ghanaians were left in total awe in Monrovia when their opponents sneaked through courtesy the away goal rule.

The Kumasi giants have to shift their focus to the domestic top flight and the MTN FA Cup after their elimination from the elite inter-club competition of the continent.

The Liberian champions waited until the 85th minute to stab the Ghanaians who were left with little time to recover.

The Fabulous club would have to consolidate their lead on the domestic log, win the Cup competition or finish as runner-up in order to revive their Africa campaign next year. They failed to reach the last-eight of the Champions League last season.
