Sewe, Leopards in CAF CC finalist decider

25 September 2014, 12:15

Johannesburg - Sewe Sport and AC Leopards will this weekend go head to head in the second leg semi-final tie of the CAF Confederation Cup to decide a finalist.

The game is harder to call after first-time semi-finalists Sewe established a slender 1-0 home lead over 2012 Confederation Cup winners Leopards.

Christian Kouame scored after a goalmouth scramble 12 minutes into the second half at the palm tree-lined Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan.

It is a slight advantage, but Sewe have won two and drawn one of four away games en route to the semi-finals and conceded just two goals in 360 minutes.

Behind a solid defence Sewe have Sylvain Gbohouo, one of the three Ivory Coast goalkeepers at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Leopards have been erratic lately, hammering four goals past Coton and past ASEC and then firing a blank against Sewe.

The biggest Congolese threats are likely to be teenager Kader Bidimbou and Cesaire Gandze, who have bagged 11 Confederation Cup goals between them.

Whichever sides advance to the final will have a long wait with the first leg scheduled only for the last weekend in November due to fixture congestion.
