The Mauve & Yellows were on the brink of a brilliant 3-0 result in Cape Coast before the visitors secured an away goal that could prove crucial in the second leg scheduled in two weeks’ time.
After a goalless first half, Medeama came into the second half with a lot of determination and looked very purposeful.
They dominated and created better chances, scoring three goals, including a stunning strike by Kofi Asmah.
Just two minutes into the second half, Nana Kofi Babil gave the Mauve and Yellows a deserved lead, and the second goal arrived in the 65th minute, courtesy of Nurudeen Abdulai.
The stadium was absolutely rocking with a 3-0 lead, but Horoya seized their moment and scored in the 89th minute.
Medeama will now travel to Conakry with the task of defending well to come out unscathed.
They have a two-goal margin to protect and aim to make history by reaching the CAF Champions League group stage for the first time in the club’s history
