Goals in each half from Pierre Kwizera and Moussa Camara secured victory for Rayon, who advanced 6-0 on aggregate.
Despite the numerical disadvantage, Burundian import Kwizera scored the opener on 27 minutes with a stunning free-kick from 35 yards before Malian striker Camara put the icing on the cake eight minutes from time.
Rayon, Rwanda’s surviving club in the African club championship after the ouster of rivals from the Total CAF Champions League, will face Onze Createurs of Mali at the 1/16th round in a game that head coach Djuma Masudi is looking forward to.
“I am happy to qualify and I’m looking forward to the next round. I am happy with the way my players are doing, but we have to keep the spirit.
“The important thing for us now is the game against Onze Createurs, as winning would be a very good turning point. The coaching staff and the players are looking forward to the game, and we want to win it.
“We also need to be ready for league matches and Total CAF Confederation Cup because we need to do better in both competitions. We have to work hard to ensure that we keep a clean sheet in the first leg away from home in order to give ourselves a good chance to finish off the job in the return leg match in-front of our home fans.”
“We need to work hard as we going to face big team because this is big stage where you meet big teams. We have some time to recover and we have to be prepared well because against Onze Createurs won’t be an easy game.
