Medeama is likely to feel disappointed about conceding a late goal just as they appeared headed for a convincing victory in the first leg of their CAF Champions League playoff encounter against the Guinean giants, Horoya.
The Ghanaian champions were on the cusp of securing an impressive 3-0 win in Cape Coast before the visitors managed to score an important away goal that may carry significance in the forthcoming second leg, scheduled in two weeks.
Following a goalless first half, Medeama entered the second half with renewed determination, asserting their dominance and creating superior goal-scoring opportunities. They netted three goals, including a spectacular strike by Kofi Asmah.
Merely two minutes into the second half, Nana Kofi Babil provided the Mauve and Yellows with a well-deserved lead, while the second goal arrived in the 65th minute, courtesy of Nurudeen Abdulai.
With a commanding 3-0 advantage, the stadium was filled with exuberance, but Horoya seized their opportunity and managed to score in the 89th minute.
Medeama will now travel to Conakry with the mission of maintaining a strong defense to avoid conceding. They hold a two-goal advantage that they must protect, with their sights set on making history by reaching the CAF Champions League group stage for the first time.
