The Porcupine Warriors went down by a goal to the Burkina Faso outfit after just 16 minutes when Dramane Kambou struck with an intelligent free-kick to make it 1-0 to the away team.
After going down very early in the game, the hosts upped their game and started dominating possession but couldn’t really threaten the opposition goal.
The first half of the match ended 1-0 to the away team who looked very comfortable sitting back and allowing the Reds to have the ball throughout the 45 minutes.
After the break, Kotoko pushed harder and more for the equalizer but failed to score as they succumbed to a painful 1-0 loss at home.
With the defeat, the aggregate score became 1-1 and the intense game had to be settled from the penalty shoot-outs.
Kotoko missed three out of four penalty kicks and lost 3-1 to the Burkina Faso outfit to crush out of the 2022-23 CAF Champions League.
Read some angry fans tweet after Asante Kotoko Caf Champions league exit:

We had a very good draw. This was the best time to make it to the group stage, buh our management enjoys proving the media wrong than doing what’s necessary. Some of my AK brothers, over to U. U’ve let @AsanteKotoko_SC down. This is sad!!!
