Gambian clubs, The Gambia Armed Forces and Gamtel FC both must produce miracles to overturn their deficits against their opponents in the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League and Confederations Cup respectively.

The Soldiers were held to a 1-1 draw by Senegalese side Teungueth in the first-leg clash of the continent's elite football competition played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

They must produce a miracle to beat the Senegalese side in the second-leg encounter in Dakar to sail to the second round of the 2020 CAF Champions League after sharing the spoils in the first-leg of the annual football club competition.

The Telecommunication giants slipped to Moroccan side Tas De Casablanca 1-0 in the first-leg tie of the continent's second tier football club competition. 

Meanwhile, they need to produce a miracle to defeat the Moroccan side at least 2-0 or 2-1 in the second-leg fixture in Rabat to navigate to the second round of the continent’s second tier football club competition.
