Three of the four Guinean clubs that entered Africa this season have been eliminated from their respective competitions after just the First Round of matches.
The decision of CAF to prevent competitive international matches taking place in the Francophone African country following the 5th September Coup d’Etat of the military powers that ousted President Alpha Conde has indeed taken a toll on their clubs that are in Africa.
Hearts of Oak defeated CI Kamsar by 2-0 last Sunday at the Accra Sports stadium in a one-off contest to reach the Second Round of the CAF Champions League.
Wakriya AC were the first to be eliminated after losing 3-0 to Diambars FC in Senegal in the Confederation Cup.
In Nigeria Bayelsa United stayed comfortably at home to beat Guinean side Ashanti Golden Boys by 4-2 in the Confederation Cup.
This means last season’s Guinea champions Horoya AC are the only side from the country of Liverpool star Naby Keita remaining in Africa.
Horoya will take on Stade Malien for the first leg slated between 15th and 17th October in the Champions League before the second leg taking place a week later.
