Football / 56th Congo Cup: Motema Pembe and Céleste face off on Saturday for a place in the quarter-finals

Kinshasa, June 19th, 2021 (CPA).- DC Motema Pembe from Kinshasa and Céleste FC from Mbandaka (Equateur province) will face each other on Saturday at the Martyrs of Pentecost stadium, for a place in the quarterfinals of the 56th Congo Cup.

The Immaculate people of the Congolese capital are members of the Ligue 1 of the national championship, while the Ban’Ekanga belong to the Ligue 2 West zone. Beyond any speculation on the balance of power, it goes without saying that on paper, the green and white club Kinshasa is more than favorite against its opponent of the day.

Regardless of her status, Céleste had the nerve to eliminate AC Rangers from Kinshasa with a narrow score of 1-0 during her last outing. Suffice to say that in view of this result, Motema Pembe, decided to find Africa by this route and who had escaped in front of FC MK of Kinshasa by 2-0, should approach this meeting with a lot of caution. . The elimination of the Academicians of Kinshasa is a flea in the ear of the green and white, even if the matches follow each other but are not alike. ACP/
