Stade Malien took a big step toward the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday evening when they defeated AS Vita 2-0 in the first leg of their playoff tie.

The Malians claimed their victory over the DRC side at Stade Modibo Keita in Malabo thanks to goals in the fourth and 69th minutes, with Boubacar Bangoura and Mandala Konte scoring for the home side.

Stade Malien, who were beaten by another DRC side, TP Mazembe, in the second round of the CAF Champions League, will now be confident of advancing to the last eight of Africa’s second-tier club competition.

However, Vita, who were runners-up in the Champions League last year, will look to overturn the deficit when the teams meet for the second leg in Kinsahsa on the weekend of 5-7 June.
