Confederation Cup: Aduana Stars eliminated after defeat to ASEC

Ghanaian Champions, Aduana Stars have been eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup after suffering a 2-0 to Asec Mimosas of Cote d’Ivoire.

Zao Gbagnon Badie converted a 24th-minute penalty before Willy Ta Bi’s brilliant finish ten minutes later, put the Ivorians in firm control of the match before the break.

After the break, Kenichi Yatsuhashi’s efforts were not enough to claw them back in the game as they succumbed to their 3rd defeat out of the five matches they have played so far.

The game was Aduana’s last home game in the competition, with Raja Casablanca to come in a fortnight.

Aduana needed to win to stand any chance of progressing from the group stage of the competition.

The defeat now leaves Aduana bottom of Group A with 4 points while Asec move to 6 points with the last round of matches to come.

In Group A’s other game, Congolese side AS Vita Club moved top of the table after beating Raja Casablanca of Morocco 2-0 at home. Vita are now guaranteed a top two finish and progress into the next round with their 10 points while Raja (8 points) and Asec (6 points) still have a chance to progress.

Raja host Aduana and Asec visits Vita in the last round of matches.
