Ahram Online , Wednesday 8 Mar 2023

Pyramids FC took a step towards securing a place in the Confederation Cup quarter-finals after thrashing Togolese side ASKO de Kara 4-1 away from home on Wednesday.


With the win, the Egyptian side advanced to the top of the Group with eight points - one point ahead of FAR Rabat of Morocco who will face another Egyptian side Future FC in Cairo later on Wednesday.

Tunisian forward Fakhreddine Ben Youssef, who scored the winner in the 1-0 game against ASKO de Kara last week in Cairo, found the net again in tonight's clash when he opened the scoring with a nice shot from inside the area in the 3rd minute.  

Talented winger Mostafa Fathi netted twice in the 26th and the 37th minutes, respectively.

Eslam Issa completed the rout five minutes after the hour-mark.

Two minutes later, defender Kangnivi Ama Tchoutchoui scored the consolation goal for the hosts, who lie on the Group bottom with a single point from four games.  

Pyramids FC will visit FAR Rabat on Sunday 19 March before ending their Group stage campaign two weeks later in Cairo against compatriots Future FC in an all Egyptian clash.
