It took only three minutes to get the opening goal as Mathew Kelvin Andoh drove a rebound into the net after Pillars goalkeeper Suraji Ayeleso parried Richard Arthur’s first shot.

Emmanuel Gyamfi sealed the win the second goal in the 77th minute. The diminutive winger hit a fine strike into the net after a chest pass by Naby Keita.

The first leg of Kotoko-Etoile clash will be in Kumasi on the weekend of 13–15 September and the return leg in Sousse a fortnight later.

The last time Kotoko reached the Group stage of the CAF Champions League was in 2006.

MATCH SUMMARY

Kotoko got off to a fantastic start with a goal within 5 mins from Kelvin Andoh. The Porcupine Warriors did an amazing job of keeping the visitors out in the first 45 minutes. The second half was no different with Kotoko creating more opportunities and Naby Keita did get a goal right before the hour mark but it was ruled out for offside. The home team were however rewarded for their efforts 11 minutes from time as Emmanuel Gyamfi finished off Keita’s pass to book their place in the final round of qualification.

2-0 it ended. 4-3 on aggregate and a date with Etoile de Sahel to look up to.
