APR have progressed to the first round of CAF Confederation Cup following a 2-1 win over Anse Reunion of Seychelles in return leg of preliminary round. Over the two legs APR scored six goals, conceding one.

The military side, who went into the return leg with a 4-0 lead in the bag, came from behind to score win courtesy of goals from Herve Rugwiro and Issa Bigirimana.

APR will still have a mountain to climb against Djoliba of Mali who qualified for the next stage without kicking a ball after Liberia’s Elwa United pulled out of the tournament at the last minute due to financial problems.

The APR will first visit Djoliba in the first leg early next month.

Djoliba reached the group stage in the 2012 CAF Confederation Cup while APR have never reached the group stage since they made their debut in Africa’s biggest club competition in 1997.
