Asante Kotoko began the game on a sloppy note, conceding as early as the second minute.

The game appeared to be heading towards an extra time as it was tied at 1-1 aggregate with just some few minutes to end regulation time.

San Pedro FC scored the tie-deciding goal to earn book their place in the group stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.

Asante Kotoko began the continental adventure in the CAF Champions League before being relegated to the Second-tier club competition by Tunisian side, Etoile Du Sahel.
