Medeama SC advanced to the Group Stage of this year’s Confederation Cup after securing an impressive 2-0 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns in the second leg tie of the final play-off on Wednesday afternoon.
One goal in either half through Malik Akowuah and striker Bernard Ofori were enough to hand the Tarkwa-based outfit the needed qualification.
Evans Adotey’s men thus qualify to the ‘Money Zone’ on the away goal rule despite succumbing to a 3-1 defeat in the first leg in Pretoria.
Midfielder Malik Akowuah expectedly converted a spot kick to give the reigning MTN FA Cup holders a slender 1-0 victory in the first half.
They put in much effort to increase the tally but all their efforts were fruitless. Substitute Bernard Ofori notched the much important goal on the 65th minute to put smiles on the faces of the supporters who thronged to the Essipong Sports Stadium.
The draw for the group stages of the competition will be held on Friday at the headquarters of CAF in Egypt.
