Former Kotoko and Bechem United striker Ahmed Toure scored the only goal for the home side Asec Mimosa in their first group stage match against Aduana Stars in the CAF Confederation Cup at Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny.

Toure took a powerful header to beat Aduana Stars goalkeeper Joseph Addo , making the CAF Confederation campaign a brighter one for the Ivoirian giants as they see of the Ghanaian Champions with a 1-0 win .

The Ghana Champions could not rescue a point for themselves despite putting up an impressive performance on Sunday.

The Ogya lads were wasteful yesterday as Nathaniel Asamoah wasted two goal scoring opportunities in the game when he blasted his shoots way over the bar.

Yahaya Mohammed also saw his decent effort go wide in the 57th minute after a good build-up from the Ogya lads. Substitute Bright Adjei could have drawn Aduana Stars level when he missed a glorious opportunity late in the game.

The attacker received a pass from Zakaria Mumuni on the far left but hesitate as he took a feeble shoot wide.

The Ghanaian Champions return to Ghana following the defeat to play some of their outstanding game in the domestic league.

The result means Aduana are without a point in group A of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Ghana Premier League Champions will welcome Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca to the Nana Agyeman Badu II Park on Sunday May 19 to play their second group stage game.
