The game which was witnessed by a host of the local fans saw both teams selling a very good game to the fans that turned up in their numbers.
The hosts started the game on a high note, dictating the pace and creating good goal scoring chances, but on all occasions poor finishing was their bane with the likes of Derrick Sasraku, Noah Martey and Nathaniel Asamoah, the culprits.
Setif played a very well-rehearsed game, and that was to soak the pressure and hit Aduana Stars on the break and it worked to perfection leaving the hosts frustrated on most occasions.
Setif also brought on Akram Dajahnit and Sid Ahmed for Zakaria Haddouchie and Mohamed Ziti.
However, it was Aduana Stars’ changes that by far worked as Zakaria Mumuni was fouled in the penalty area. Substitute Adams sent Setif goalkeeper Moustafa Zedhda the wrong way to score the opener in the 72nd minute, which later turned out to be the match winner.
