Medema east past Horoya AC in Cape Coast, big test awaits in Guinea

Ghanaian side, Medeama SC overcame Guinean giants Horoya AC with a 3-1 triumph in the 2023/24 CAF Champions League playoffs at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The win serves as an important stepping stone in their challenge for the group stage spot in the continent’s top flight tourney.

Coach Evans Adotey trusted Black Stars duo Jonathan Sowah and Hamidu Fatawu to start for the Yellow and Mauves.

Despite a lively performance from both teams in the first half, neither side could get on the scoresheet.

In the second half, attacker Nana Kofi Babil broke the deadlock in the 58th minute for Medeama.

Later in the 65th minute, Nurudeen Abdulai also found the back of the net of Horoya AC to double the lead for the hosts.

Four minutes later, a thunderbolt strike from Kofi Asmah sealed a 3-1 victory for Medeama SC.

The only consolation goal for Horoya AC was scored in the 89th minute through Lamine Fofana.

The Ghana Premier League champions now have a good advantage heading into the second-leg encounter against Horoya AC next weekend.
