Remo Stars are out of the CAF Confederation Cup after losing 1-0 at home to the nemesis of Nigerian clubs, Morocco’s  Association’s Sports of Forces Armed Royal (AS FAR).

They crashed out 2-1 on aggregate after having an initial soul-lifting 1-1 draw last Sunday in Rabat.

Remo Stars become the fifth Nigerian club to ever crash out to the ‘military’ tactics of the Royal Moroccan Army football club.

Victory however did not come easy for the Moroccans who profited from the howler Bashiru Monsuru committed in the 55th minute as the ball went straight to a Moroccan attacker who blasted past Kayode Bankole in goal.

As much as the Remo Stars boys tried, they missed chances after chances.

Expectedly, the Moroccans activated the delay tactics that further frustrated Remo Stars.
