After weeks of twists and turns over where to play the Real de Banjul BYC return leg, the Gambia Football Federation (GFF) announced yesterday that the match will be played tomorrow at the KG5 Mini Stadium in Banjul at 4:30pm.
The tie will be the home leg for BYC after the initial fixture scheduled to take place in Bamako failed to proceed, because Mali refused to allow BYC into their territory.
According to the GFF, the decision to play the much troubled leg in Banjul was made by the Confederation of African Football Caf in consultation with the Liberian Football Association LFA and The Gambia football authorities.
A statement from Football House said the GFF has assured both Caf and the LFA of a successful second leg arrangement.
The first leg on Valentine’s Day ended 1-1 and both sides are baying for each others’ blood to kill the tie at the ancient KG5 grounds tomorrow. Real de Banjul is still rueing the many lost chances in the first leg and have vowed to make amends which technical director Frank Van de Velde said can only be achieved by scoring and not letting cheap goals. BYC on the other hand were contended with the draw which handed them a vital away goal. But having spared no expense and time to play this leg defying all odds the Liberians must have an enormous amount of confidence going into this match.]]>
