Napsa Stars may be out of the 2020/2021 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal race but their striker Doisy Soko is in a tight chase for the unofficial group stage top scorers title.
The 23-year-old has so far scored three continental goals, all in the group stages, and is tight race heading into Wednesdays’ final CAF Confederation Cup group matches with Enyimba’s Augustine Oladapo, Papa Paye of Senegalese club Jaraaf and Raja Casablanca striker Soufiane Rahimi.
Two of Soko’s goals have come in Napsa’s last two Group B matches that included a stoppage-time goal in their 2-1 away loss at Coton Sport in Cameroon on April 12.
Soko’s latest was on April 21 in Napsa’s 1-0 home win over RSB Berkane that ended the Moroccan sides’ defence of the CAF Confederation Cup title.
He now has an opportunity to add his fourth on April 28 in Napsa final Group B match away match in Algeria against JS Kabylie.
Ironically, Soko’s debut continental goal was against JSK on March 17 in a game Napsa threw away a 2-0 lead well into their last goal of the game he scored in the 63rd minute, only to settle for a 2-2 stoppage-time draw with the Algerian giants in Lusaka.
Should Soko get goal number four in Tizi Ouzou, he will tie with veteran Emmanuel Mayuka who is currently Napsa’s top scorer in continental competition this term.
