Chelsea reach African Champions League group stage

Debutants, Berekum Chelsea have sealed their place in the group stage of the African Champions League after eliminating Coton Sport on Sunday.
The former Ghanaian champions won 2-1 in Garoua after both sides drew goalless in the first leg a fortnight ago.
Striker Emmanuel Clottey and captain Abdul Basit scored for Chelsea as a Coton Sport pulled one back in between both goals.
Chelsea's progress in the competition makes up for a disappointing run in the domestic Ghanaian league where they failed to successfully defend their title.
For reaching the mini-league phase, Chelsea will be guaranteed $400,000 prize money while Coton Sport will be given a second chance in the Confederation Cup.
