CAF: Club Africain hold narrow lead going into second leg (+video)
In the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup final, Africa’s equivalent of the Europa League or Copa Sudamericana, Tunisians Club Africain secured a slender 1-0 advantage over MAS Fes going into the second leg which takes place in Morocco in a fortnight’s time.
Alexis Mendemo scored the only goal of the game as early as the 8th minute to keep hopes of a Tunisian double in African competition alive following Esperance Tunis’ triumph in the CAF Champions League last weekend. To make matters worse for MAS Samir Zekroumi was sent off just before the hour mark to leave the Moroccans with ten men.
MAS will hope to turn the tie around in the second leg on December 4th in which they will enjoy home advantage over the Tunisians.
