The Liberians are due in Banjul in mid- February for the first leg before Real flies to Monrovia at the end of that month for the second leg.
At the time of the draw, many Gambians expressed concern about the fate of the tie in the light of the current Ebola crisis in Liberia which until yesterday had prevented any football activities in that country. Yesterday though the Liberian government allowed domestic football programmes to resume in the country.
With a little over a month to the first leg, The Standard sought clarification from both the GFF and Real de Banjul on the fixture. While GFF Number 3 Faye said they have no advice against going ahead, Real’s Bakary Jammeh could only say that his club is going to represent The Gambia in the champion’s league. He would give no further details.]]>
