They are up against current holders Entente Sportive de Setif of Algeria this coming weekend while the return leg is in Banjul on April 4. 

For coach Amat Cham’s side the challenge could never have been this big. But Real’s stellar performance  on Saturday which could have seen them beat the  Liberians even earlier and with a bigger scoreline,  has turned every  player and fan to believe the club is on the path to great achievements, dragging along Gambian football hopes.

Real slapped the visitors with an early goal, in a fixture they were technically away (after Ebola hit Liberia failed find host elsewhere) but the goal was disallowed for offside. Undeterred, the Real produced a thriller as Ebou Sanyang and Famara Jarju combined splendidly to lay a laser guided pass that Yankuba Jarju coolly converted to a goal that stood for real. BYC’s response was lackluster though fully fueled with vengeance. Real cling to the slender lead and vital away goal to take the tie 2-1 on aggregate.


Next stop for Real is Setif, home of the current African champions who have just won the Super Cup two weeks ago. The match is expected to be played this Friday while the return leg is expected in Banjul on April 4.
