Mission possible as Gor face Berkane in Morocco

It has been a journey of success for k’Ogalo in the CAF Confederation Cup this season. After clinching the 2018 Kenyan Premier League title, Gor Mahia began their continental campaign with little hope of advancing to where they have reached.

Meeting Nyasa Big Bullets was the first test which k’Ogalo passed thanks to Boniface Oluoch heroics in goal after a 1:1 aggregate stalemate in Malawi.

The boys would then advance to the first round of the Champions League where Nigeria’s Lobi Stars lay in wait.

The return match of the encounter proved one the most interesting games in the campaign; Gor Mahia won the first leg 3:1 at home making it a norm that Mayienga would always win at home.

But what happened in Nigeria in the return match when the boys succumbed to a  2:0 defeat to deny them a historic passage to the group stage of the premium club championship is a story for another day.

Gor Mahia later scaled down to the CAF Confederation Cup and faced New Stars de Douala of Cameroon, winning the first leg 2:1 at home. k’Ogalo pulled a barren draw in the reverse fixture to make the group stage of the second tier CAF club tournament for the second time on the bounce.

Gor Mahia staged a stunning performance at the group stage where they were grouped against African giants – Zamalek of Egypt, NA Hussein Dey of Algeria and Petro de Luanda of Angola.

Beating Zamalek 4:2 at Kasarani Stadium surprised the entire African football fratanity. The stunning performance rejuvenated the zeal for the campaign.

With losses on all away matches, Gor Mahia qualified for CAF CC after winning 3 home matches.

But the first leg outing in the quarters was not as pleasing against RS Berkane of Morocco, losing 2-0.

The second leg is happening tonight at 10.00pm Kenyan time in Berkane. It my look tough but we believe the spirit of Gor Mahia is indomitable and we shall prevail.
