Cote d’Ivoire’s San Pedro produced one of the memorable CAF Confederation Cup comebacks, defeating Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko 2-0 in Abidjan on Sunday evening to reach the 2019-20 Total CAF Confederation Cup group stage.

San Pedro overturned their away first leg 1-0 defeat last weekend when they conceded a deep injury-time goal from the spot, but they proved strong to take home advantage and go to the mini-league stage. While Kotoko was left ruing their missed chances as the former African Champions missed yet again a place in the lucrative group stage.

Cheick Soumaro gave the hosts a very early lead after just three minutes to equalize the aggregate clash score at 1-1. The opening half witnessed no more goals as things were left to be decided in the second stanza.

And while the game looked on its way to a shootout to decide the aggregate winner, Tidjae Diomande scored the all-important winner for the Ivoirians five minutes from time to send San Pedro to the group stage. Kotoko finished the game with ten men after seeing the red card shown to Agyemang Badu just before time.
