Medeama recorded a 3-1 win over Horoya AC in the first leg of their CAF Champions League playoff tie against the Guinean giants.

The Ghanaian champions were on the brink of a brilliant 3-0 result in Cape Coast before the visitors secured an away goal.

After a goalless first half, Medeama came into the second half with determination. We dominated and created better chances, scoring three goals, including a stunning strike by Kofi Asmah.

Just two minutes into the second half, Nana Kofi Babil gave the Mauve and Yellows a deserved lead, and the second goal arrived in the 65th minute, courtesy of Nurudeen Abdulai.

With a 3-0 lead, the stadium was absolutely rocking, but Horoya seized their moment and scored in the 89th minute.

Medeama will now travel to Conakry with the task of defending well to come out unscathed.

They have a two-goal margin to protect and aim to make history by reaching the CAF Champions League group stage for the first time.
