Bilbao FC opened the scores through striker Yankuba Janneh alias Alexis Sanchez midway into the first half, midfielder Omar Janneh alias Juninho netted the second goal from an excellent free-kick before break to dash Solid Properties FC’s hopes of coming back to their feet.

Midfielder Omar Janneh alias Juninho notched in the third goal for Bilbao FC after the interval to sail to the last four and also to complete his brace.

The Gunjur Kulukochi-based outfit reacted quickly for an equalizer and came very close to scoring on numerous occasions but squandered their limited goal-scoring opportunities thus the game ended 3-0 in favour of Bilbao FC.

Elsewhere, Ajax FC thumped Lion FC 2-0 in the second quarterfinal to reach the last four.
