CAF Confederation Cup: Songne Yacouba ruled out of Zesco United clash

Published on: 11 March 2019

Asante Kotoko striker Songne Yacouba has been ruled out of their final Caf Confederation Cup Group C match against Zesco United on Sunday.

The Burkinabe was shown his second yellow card of the competition during the 1-1 stalemate with Al Hilal at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

The 27-year-old scored a late goal to give the Porcupine Warriors a share of the spoils and keep their quarter-final qualification hopes alive.

Yacouba received his first card in the 3-1 defeat against Nkana FC in Kitwe.

This is a major blow for coach Charles Kwablan Akunnor and his charges, who need a win against Zesco United to stand any chance of reaching of the next stage of the competition for the first time since 2008 and hope Al Hilal win to qualify.
