Gambia off to Bamako prior to CHAN qualifiers 2nd leg against Mali

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

The Gambia National CHAN team yesterday left Banjul for Bamako prior to their crucial 2018 CHAN qualifiers second-leg clash with Mali on Saturday 22 July 2017 in Bamako.

The home-based Scorpions were held to a goalless draw by the local based-Eagles in the first-leg tie played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau at the weekend.

The Gambia now need a score draw in the second leg in Bamako on Saturday  to advance to the second round of the qualifiers following their goalless draw with Mali in the first leg, but a win for Mali will see them through to the second round of the qualifiers and The Gambia out.

A goalless draw in the second leg in Bamako on Saturday will push the game into a penalty shootout and the winner in the shootout will play against Mauritania or Liberia in the final round of the qualifiers.
