Kotoko celebrate win against Kano Pillars

Asante Kotoko have reached the next round of the CAF Champions League following a 2-0 win against Kano Pillars at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday. 

With the first leg ending 3-2 in favour of the Nigerians, Kotoko qualify for the first round on a 4-3 aggregate and will face off with Tunisia's Etoile Sahel.

It took Kotoko 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 with 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.
