CAF Confede Cup: Warri Wolves edges out Union Douala, gets CA Bizertin
Warri Wolves have qualified for the second round of the CAF Confederations Cup with 4-3 aggregate win, despite they played out 1-1 draw Union Douala of Cameroon in Warri on Sunday.
The 2013 Cameroonian Premier League third place finisher in the first leg suffered a shocking 2-3 home lost in Cameroon against the Nigeria’s 2013 Federation Cup runner-up last weekend.
The stalemate was produced through spot kicks for both teams all in the second half of the game.
Musa Najare missed strings of chances in the first half to leave the Nigerian campaigners in search of an all-important goal to consolidate on their first leg advantage over their Cameroonian visitors.
Incidentally, it was wasteful Musa Najare that converted the spot kick earned after Oghenekaro Karo Etebo was brought down in the area to secure the lead but failed to hold out for victory.
The spirited visitors pulled one back through Djumo Tchan Christian from the spot in added time, but efforts were not enough to see them through.
The Seasiders have been rewarded with a second round draw against Club Athlétique Bizerti of Tunisia who dumped out Desportivo da Huíla of Angola 3-0 on aggregate.
The Nigeria’s 2013 Federation Cup runner-up will host the Tunisia Cup winners on March 23rd before travelling a week later to Tunisia for the reserve fixture in the second round of the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup.
