CAF Confed Cup: Kotoko throw away lead to lose against Setif

A resolute performance from ES Setif has seen the side coming from behind to defeat Kumasi Asante Kotoko 2-1 in the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Algerians came from behind to beat the Porcupine Warriors 2-1 in the first leg of play-off tie.

Although both teams put up a good showing in the first half, neither side could score and as a result went into the break on level pegging.

With an improved performance from Asante Kotoko in the second half, the Ghanaian side dominated the play as they pushed for an equalizer.

Eventually, in the 69th minute, danger man Kwame Opoku scored with a brilliant effort after he was teed up by Emmanuel Gyamfi.

With cheers from the home fans, Asante Kotoko looked like they could go on to carry the day.

Unfortunately, two goals from Amoura Mohammed and Kendouci Mohammed changed the narrative to give ES Setif a 2-1 win at the end of the 90 minutes.

With today’s defeat, Asante Kotoko will need to mount a strategy for the return leg that will be played in Algeria next weekend.
