Debutants Bo Rangers are out of this year’s CAF Champions League after they suffered a 3-0 defeat at the Stade du 8-Mai-1945 in their second-leg preliminary in Algeria on Saturday.
Both teams played to a goalless draw in the first lg in Liberia’s SDK stadium a week ago in Monrovia.
The competition first-timers were hoping to stun their host, but the Algerian Champions were the better side on the day.
A brace from Karim Aribi in the 86th and 90th minutes completed the home side’s victory after Mouad Hadda had opened the scoring in the 34th-minute first half.
Bo Rangers were without defender Abu Bakarr Samura aka Lucio, due to injury.
In the Second Round, CR Belouizdad will face the winner between Deportivo Mongomo Equatorial Guinean football club and Djoliba Athletic Club Malian football in October.
Deportivo Mongomo Equatorial Guinean won the first leg 2-0 a week ago. They will play the reverse fixture today in Mali.
Clubs that received bye to Second Preliminary Round
Al Ahly (Egypt), Esperance (Tunisia), Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa), Raja Club Athletic (Morocco), TP Mazembe (DR Congo), and Wydad Athletic Club (Morocco).
Horoya AC (Guinea) are through to the next round following the withdrawal of Gambia’s Hawks FC.
