Medeama vs Remo
After a war of words between the two sides after the draw pitted both sides from Ghana and Nigeria, it was the Ghanaians who have the advantage now.
Remo Stars started well and dominated the game early on but it was the home side who took the lead following a deflected goal in the 22nd game.
The Sky Blues reacted positively to going behind as they pushed for the equaliser which proved elusive.
Medeama had some decent chances to add to the scoreline but Remo goalkeeper Bankole Kayode was a bulwark in between the sticks.
Remo pressed on for the leveller in the second half, with Super Eagles Sikiru Alimi having the team’s best chance of the game.
However, the forward was unable to convert as he missed the sitter and chance to level the score.
Despite an improved second-half showing, Medeama held on to their narrow lead and will head into the second leg next week with a slim advantage.
