Former champions Hearts of Oak beat Olympique de Ngor 3-2 on Saturday in M’bour to reach the CAF Confederation Cup penultimate qualifying round.

The Phobians sealed a 5-3 aggregate win to set up a date with Malian side Djoliba who eliminated Egyptian side Petrojet.

Hearts went down in the eighth minute after Mohammed Sannie scored for the hosts and they went into the break with a 1-0 defeat but revived their campaign in the second installment.

Winger Eric Kumi drew Hearts level before captain Robin Gnagne gave them the lead from the spot after Togolese import Foovi Aguidi was down inside the box.

But Olympique de Ngor leveled through Yannick before Paul Acquah snatched the match winner.

Hearts’ next assignment will be at the Stade Modibo Kéïta in Bamako on 18 April in the first leg tie.
