CAF Confederation Cup: Bendel Insurance pip Algeria’s ASO Chlef 1-0
In the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round clash, Bendel Insurance secured a narrow 1-0 victory against Algeria’s ASO Chlef at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City.
The only goal of the game was netted by Imade Osarenkhoe during the first half, setting the tone for the encounter.
Under the guidance of manager Monday Odigie, Bendel Insurance made valiant efforts to increase their goal tally but were hindered by their inability to convert their chances.
ASO Chlef, on the other hand, took a more defensive approach throughout the match, seemingly content with the result of the game.
In order to advance to the next round, Abdelkader Yaiche’s side must secure victory in the second leg by scoring two goals without conceding. The return fixture is scheduled to take place at the Mohamed Boumezrag Stadium next weekend.
The match outcome sets the stage for an intriguing second leg, with both teams aiming to secure their progression in the CAF Confederation Cup.
