Leopards book Orange Champs League spot

17 February 2014, 09:30

Addis Ababa - AFC Leopards progressed into the first round of the Confederations Cup following a 2-1 away victory to Defence of Ethiopia at the National Stadium in Addis Ababa.

Two goals from Allan Wanga in the 46th and 88th minutes were enough to see AFC Leopards sail through to the next stage of the tournament.

The Ethiopian said scored first in the 39th minute through Michael Dessta, but failed to defend their narrow lead.

Had it not been for poor shooting upfront by AFC Leopards' Jacob Keli and Augustine Etemesi, the Kenyans could have won the match by a wider margin.

Defence of Ethiopia created their own chances through skilful Ferew Solomon, but the striker always found the AFC goalkeeper Wycliffe Kasaya equal to the task.

Earlier on, AFC Leopards had won their first leg in Kenya 2-0, a comfortable lead that proved workable in their favour in this return encounter in Ethiopia.

The 2-1 victory eventually gave the visitors a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory, meaning that the Ethiopians needed to score additional five goals against Kenyans in order to qualify, something that proved to be a daunting task.

The match, which was full of action, saw two AFC Leopards players - captain Martin Imbalambala and tough tackling defender James Situma shown the yellow cards.
