The Harmony Boys qualified 3-0 on aggregate, setting up a second round meeting with reigning Confederation Cup champions Berkane.

AS Douanes created the better chances, but they were frustrated by goalkeeper Adewale Adeyinka, who was simply in top form between the sticks for the away side.

Yaya Aboubacar and Shamsu Alhassane both found themselves in dangerous situations with Adewale and the shot-stopper produced two amazing saves to deny the duo.

At the other end, Kwara United did threaten the hosts, but Wasiu Jimoh was superbly denied by Halidou Abduolaye.

Muri Lawal’s cross found Issa Gata but the forward failed to punish the hosts.

Adewale then picked a deadly cross from Abdoulaziz Ibrahim as Amadou Kader was waiting to pounce and the score was 0-0 at half-time.

Former Gombe United man Adewale was the busier of the two keepers after the restart as the he was forced to come out and block Shamsu Alhassane’s attempt after his defence was exposed.

Before pulling off more saves as he denied Traore Yaya and Aboubacar Traore to ensure that the second-leg match ended in a 0-0 draw.
