AS Otoho d’Oyo beat Mamelodi in Champions League qualifier

Mamelodi Sundowns suffer Champions League defeat - Sports Leo

Mamelodi Sundowns went down 2-1 to AS Otoho d’Oyo in a CAF Champions League preliminary round, the first-leg match in Owando, Congo on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors paid the penalty early on when Oyo were awarded a spot-kick in the 10th minute. Alex Nganou converted from the spot to make it 1-0.

In the 26th minute, the Sundowns defence was found wanting as they leaked a goal from a corner setpiece with Fousseini Yacoubou finding the target.

With the visitors looking for a way back into the match, worse was to follow when their skipper  Hlompho Kekana was red-carded five minutes before the break.

Sundowns showed great character in taking the game to the hosts in the second half and were rewarded with a goal in the 76th minute when midfielder Thapelo Morena fired home an effort from 25 metres out.

There would be no further change to the score, as Sundowns were unable to find an equaliser.
