CAFCL: PLATEAU UNITED FOUGHT BUT STILL SPANKED IN FAR AWAY TUNISIA
NPFL Defending champions Plateau United went down to a 4-2 defeat against Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia in the first leg of their CAF Champions League first round fixture at the Stade Olympique Sousse on Tuesday.
Credit must be given to the Plateau boys for giving it a go and clawing 2 goals back. Its anybody;s guess if they can pull this out of the fire in Jos but they sure haven’t done their chances any harm. They will need to be very cautious and prevent silly errors at the back like they were committing in Tunisia.
The group stages are very finacially rewarding so the players will not need much motivation to get themselves back into reckoning.
