The Confederate of African Football (CAF) has approved the request to postpone Cotonsport’s return-leg Champions League clash against Mali’s AS Real Bamako to this Sunday, August 27 in Garoua.
The game which was initially scheduled on Saturday has been moved by 24 hours due to an undisclosed reason(s).
A release signed by the Secretary General of the Cameroon Football Federation, Blaise Djounang confirmed the new twist on Tuesday.
The Cotonites will welcome Real Bamako at the Roumde Adjia stadium counting for the return leg of the #CAFCL preliminary round.
Both sides settled for a zero all draw in Mali.

Cotonsport players return home on Monday, August 21 on the heel of their goalless draw against Real in Bamako. With this result, the Cotonites led by coach Christophe Ousmanou need any sort of win to advance to the second preliminary rounds of the competition.
The current Cameroon champions have been one of the most consistent clubs in the sub region in the past few seasons.
The Garoua outfit has reached the group stage of the CAF interclub competitions in each of the past five seasons.
Cotonsport’s last home defeat in the preliminaries of the CAF interclub competitions dates back to January 13, 2019 when they lost 2-3 to Kumasi Asante Kotoko in a home game of the CAF Confederation Cup that was played in Yaoundé.
