Baba Yara Stadium always smiles at me – RC Kadiogo’s Babayoure

RC Kadiogo goalkeeper Babayoure Sawadogo says they were positive of victory over Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko.

The Burkinabe outfit beat the Reds 3-1 on penalties following a 1-1 aggregate result in the Caf Champions League playoff.

Dramane Kambou netting the opener from a freekick in the 16th minute.

Kadiogo held on to win on penalty shootouts, booking their spot in the next round.

Sawadogo spoke after the match, highlighting the confidence of his side.

After the first leg in Cotonou , we knew we had a game at hand in Kumasi and in all my interviews I kept on saying we are in this tie.

“We lost the first game but we told ourselves the tie is played in two legs and that we can qualify,” the shot-stopper told GhanaSportsMarket.

The goalkeeper has played at the Baba Yara Stadium on three occasions and won all.

“For me personally this is my third qualification over a Ghana side here at this stadium.

“In 2017, I came here with local Burkina Faso team to eliminate the Ghana team at this same stadium.

“In fact on two occasions I was captain of the Burkina team that came here to beat Ghana and qualify.

“So this was what I told my friends that we are capable of achieving the feat and thank God we did it.

RC Kadiogo will play AS Vita Club in their next Caf Champions League game.
