Cameroon’s representative at the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup, Coton Sport of Garoua will play against Senegalese club ASC Jaraaf at the quarter-finals of the competition. The draws for the competition took place this Friday, April 30.
The first leg of the quarter-final matches will be played on the 14, 15 and 16 of May 2021, while the second leg games will come up on 21, 22 and 23 May.
Coton Sports finished second in Group B with a total of nine points with the group being won by JS Kabylie. The team won 3 games, and lost the other three, scoring 10 goals and conceded six.
Association Sportive et Culturelle Diaraf and mostly called ASC Jaraaf is the most popular club in Senegal. Jaraaf also has the most number of major honours won in Senegal numbering 28.
The Garoua-based outfit will face a side in Jaraaf who finished top of Group C with 11 points. In six games played, Jaraaf succeeded in picking up three wins, two draws and a defeat. They scored just five goals and conceded three.
Should Coton Sport succeed in overpowering Jaraaf they would have moved one step closer to winning the competition, something which will be on the mind of the team. Should the team succeed in that task, which many football lovers are pointing to; Coton Sport will face CS Sfaxien of Tunisia or meet JS Kabylie (Algeria) again at the semi-finals.
It should be noted that the first leg matches for the semi-finals have been programmed for 18, 19 and 20 June while the second leg will come up on 25, 26 and 27 June. The final has been programmed for 10 July.
