BYC And LISCR FC Lost Away In CAF Clubs Preliminaries
Liberia’s two representatives in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation and the African Champions League received whippings Tuesday and Wednesday at the start of the CAF Clubs competitions.
Barrack Young Controllers, the double champions in Liberia suffered a 1-0 defeat away at the hands of Guinean Champions Horoya FC.

On Tuesday, LISCR FC was humiliated 4-0 away to Algerian Cup winners, USM Bel Abbes at the 24 February Stadium.

The second leg is due on Tuesday at the ATS in Monrovia, where LISCR must score five-unanswered-goals if the Liberian Shipping Boys are to have a say in the second round of the preliminaries.
