Burkina Faso’s top division is entering the final third of its season and an interesting race for the title is emerging following the weekend’s action. AS SONABEL remained undefeated through 22 games following a 1-1 home draw against relegation candidates Kozaf but will be disappointed not to have obtained three points.
Despite not having any losses the team sponsored by the national electricity company have fellow Ouagadougou side Salitas to worry about. Competing in the CAF Confederation Cup alongside their domestic league campaign, the Orange and Green have been catching up in matches played but are now only three points behind SONABEL courtesy of a 2-1 victory over Vitesse. Salitas still have played one less match than the Electricians and plenty of work remains in their chase.
L’Agence d’information du Burkina goes through the weekend’s results and provides an updated table.
