Caf CC: Medeama fail to reach semi-finals

Medeama bowed out of the CAF Confederation Cup, after a 0-1 defeat against M.O Bejaia in Algeria.

M.0 Bejaia enjoyed plenty of the possession in the first half and put Medeama under intense pressure, but the Ghanaian giants were resolute in defence to coil all the threats from the hosts until the referee blew his whistle to bring the first 45 minutes in a close.

Back from recess M.O Bejaia continued to knock at the doors of Medeama until they unlocked the defensive line of Medeama to get the opener in the 52nd minute. Morgan Betrayal’s picked a pass from outside the 18-yard box and blasted it beyond the reach of Daniel Adjei in the post in a sublime manner to fetch his side the goal that sent them into the semi-finals of the competition.

M.O Bejaia almost doubled the scoreline in the 78th minute, only for Daniel Adjei to come to their rescue by parrying away a powerful header from a well-rehearsed freekick.

Akwesi Donsu responded to the Bejaia threat and also restored parity for Medeema when he blasted a powerful ball that called the Algerian goalkeeper to duty: He dived to save the ball and fell to the groud to be attended to by the medical team.

Toauti, the substitute caught Medeama off guard through a solo effort passed his marker Victor Ayireh, but he missed the goal post.

Medeama’s starting X1 against MO Bejaia: Agyei, Adade, Sarpong, Ayirey, Aidoo, Akowuah, Donsu, Kwakwa, Attah Agyei, Ofori and Abass
