The CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup continued their first preliminary rounds. Back on the results of the day of Saturday, September 11, 2021.
The CAF Champions League offered more matches on Saturday 11 September in the first preliminary round.
The Djibouti club Arta Solar 7 drew 1-1 at home to Kenyan side Tusker FC. But the highlight of the match was undoubtedly the goal of Alain Traore, the Burkina Faso international. The former Lorient man, newly signed by Arta Solar, scored a superb goal from a free kick. However, it was not enough to win the match.
What a goal from 🇧🇫 Alain Traore against 🇰🇪 Tusker FC.
