CAF CL: TP Mazembe awaits as Vipers cruise past Olympic Real De Bangui



Vipers SC prevailed to the second round of the CAF Champions league Qualifiers after humbling Central African Republic side Olympic Real De Bangui 4-0 on aggregate.

The Venoms needed a Yunus Sentamu first half strike to edge the Central African Republic side.

Vipers SC won the first leg 3-0 in Congo Brazzaville courtesy of goals from Abdu Lumala, Najib Yiga and Isa Mubiru.

The Venoms were without their head coach Robertinho Oliviera and his assistant Marcelo Cardoso as they still await CAF clearance in their documents.
Goalkeeping coach Ibrahim Mugisha took over the responsibilities on the touchline.

Sentamu who missed the first leg last week gave the home side the lead in the 18th minute.

He came close to doubling their lead but his effort off a Milton Karisa cross went over the bar.

In the second half, Bright Anukani missed a golden opportunity to extend the Venoms lead after being perfectly fed by Sentamu.

Vipers progressed to the next round 4-0 on aggregate and will next face off with DR. Congo Giants TP Mazembe with the first leg scheduled for the weekend of October 7-9th.
