Total CAF champions league.
It was a disastrous weekend for CECAFA region clubs involved in CAF champions league qualification.
Gor Mahia, Vipers and Al Hilal were ejected out of prestigious CAF champions league competition leaving Tanzania’s Simba SC as sole flag bearer of CECAFA region.
Gor Mahia traveled to Nigeria with the best chance of progressing into group stages after thumping Nigerian representatives Lobi Stars 3-1 a week ago in Kenya in the first leg .Despite K’Ogalo’s two goal advantage Lobi Stars scored 2 late goals that saw the Sportspesa funded outfit eliminated on away goals rule after tying 3-3 on aggregate.
Two second half goals at St Mary’s Studium helped Algerian Club Sportive Constantine make a convising victory over Vipers that seemed like a champions league humiliation of the Uganda Startimes out fit.
Sudanese brave Al Hilal side fell agonisingly short of producing a famous Total CAF champions turnaround at home despite a 1-0 victory over Tunisian side club Africain thanks to Sharif Shaiboub spot kick in the last minute of the game. Al Hilal still went out on a 2-3 aggregate.
CECAFA region will still count them selves lucky after cleotus Charma late goal helped Simba SC pip Nkana from Zambia by 3-1 meaning the Tanzanian club advanced to group stages after 4-3 aggregate.
