Guinea’s AS Kaloum defeated Sewe Sport 1-0 in Bamako on Sunday evening to send the Cote d’Ivoire heavyweights out of the CAF Champions League in the preliminary round.

Having claimed a surprise 2-1 win in the first leg in Abidjan midway through last month, Kaloum completed a 3-1 aggregate victory with their triumph at the Stade du 26 Mars, which was used as the venue due to the Ebola outbreak in Guinea.

AS Kaloum dominated the first half but failed to convert their first real chance when Kabongo Kassongo's cross was poorly controlled by Alseny Agogo, who had only the goalkeeper to beat in the 34th minute.

However, Kasongo made up for that miss when he scored on the cusp of half time, putting the home side 1-0 up on the day and 3-1 on aggregate.

That proved to be the only goal of the match, with Kaloum able to retain their lead up to full time and secure victory.

The Guineans will go on to face Zambian side ZESCO United in the next round. The first leg is set for March 13-15, with the return on 3-5 April.
