Gambia: Casa Sport Tame Gambian Champions

Real De Banjul suffered a 2-0 beating to Senegalese champions Casa Sport in a preparatory friendly ahead of the Caf Champions league.

The defeat being Real De Banjul's first weeks away from the start of the domestic league, is a lesson for coach Alagie Sarr who has a burden to contain after his capital club are seeded with Moroccan league runners up FUS De Rabat.

Either side fired blank in the first period at the Independence stadium yesterday evening, but gaffer Sarr a dozen homework to sweat over after conceding two goals in the second as a result of a kamikaze poor defending.

Paul Emily Tendeng made no mistake to pounce on a poor control Real's defence and the Senegalese ace perfectly headed home for the opener after a cross to the right.

Soulaymane Sane who ravaged a Brikama zonal outfit days ago was at it again and did just what he thought of the Real De Banjul slotting home the second goal.

Left-footer and former Arsenal target Dimingo Manneh came close to even up matters after cynically beating past his marker but casa Sport keeper read him well scooping the ball from his feet.

Real De Banjul were reduced to ten men when Baboucarr Savage launched a two-footed challenge on a Casa Sports player minutes from time.

Bubacarr Trawally Real last season sensation lived to the billing but his fine display was overshadowed by his wasteful trick on goal.

The Gambian side had to pay for their incredible waste before goal when Casa's towering Soulaymane met up a Mohamed Ndiaye's grounded effort that bounced past an out-of positioned Real De Banjul defence to power home for a 2-0 score.

Casa Sports a Zinguinchor-based footy club wrapped-up a clean sheet three games affair after beating Brikama zonal team then grinding out a stalemate affair before securing a convincing victory over the Gambian Champions.
