Petrojet

Petrojet have today qualified for the round of 32 of the CAF Confederation Cup after thrashing Al Ghazala of South Sudan 6-1 in the second leg of the preliminary round in Cairo.

The first leg in Juba ended 1-0 in favour of the Petroleum side, who qualify to face Djiloba AC of Mali in the next round.

Carrying a 1-0 advantage from the first game, Petrojet always looked in control. Ehab El-Masry opened the scoring and eventually went on to get a brace, whereas other goals came from Mohamed Ragab, who also got a brace, while Bilal Gamal and Nigerian striker James Owoboskini scored a goal each to confirm Petrojet’s qualification.

Al Ghazala managed a consolation goal in the second half and the tie ended 7-1 on aggregate.

Petrojet go on to face Malian heavyweights Djoliba AC with the first game mid-March in Bamako and the return leg two weeks later in Suez.
