CAF Cup: Cotonsport makes group stage after beating Nouadhibou FC

Cotonsport were faced with a task, qualifying against FC Nouadhibou with whom they shared the spoils in the away game played last weekend in Mauritania.

Cotonsport who lost a huge chunk of their first team quad relied on their striker Souaibou Marou who led the side at the Douala Reunification stadium on Sunday afternoon. The home side benefitted from the presence of their fans who pushed the side to a slight advantage.

The Garoua based side grabbed the early exchanges and 21 minutes into the game striker Marou finished off a fine cross from the right, with a diving header for 1-0. The Mauritanians had very little to offer in the first half as they chased the ball most of the time. Six minutes after the opener, the the score board changed. Tombi Alemi's pace was hard to deal with as the winger was rough handled in the penalty area right in front of the center referee who did not hesitate to pointing to the spot. Marou once again rose to the occasion to score his second of the game. His fourth in three qualifiers.

The game remained unchanged till full time. This will be the second time consecutively that CotonSport will be playing the CAF Confederation Cup group stages. What that means is based on the CAF quotas, Cameroon will now have four places for the 2022/23 CAF club competitions.
