Ghanaian clubs had mixed results in the Caf inter-club competitions Wednesday as Aduana Stars advance in the Champions League while Kotoko got eliminated from the Confederation Cup.
Aduana overturned a 1-0 first leg deficit by beating Libya’s Al-Tahadi 2-0 at the Nana Ayyeman Badu I Park in their Caf Champions League preliminary round clash.
Both goals which came through Elvis Opoku and Derrick Sasraku in the second half ensured the Ghanaian league holders advance 2-1 on aggregate.
Kotoko on the other hand could not survive penalty shootouts after they lost 1-0 away to Cara Brazzaville in regulation time. Having won the first leg with the same score line, the tie had to be determined through the kicks.
Goalkeeper Felix Annan converted the first penalty and went ahead to save three more as the shootouts dragged into sudden death. At 6-6, Kwame Boahene failed to convert his penalty, allowing Cara goalkeeper Chansel Massa to hit home the winner.
