The trio was on target in Senegalese Ligue1 as Yusupha Njie featured in the Allianz cup in Portugal.

Defending champions Casasports needed a late 90+3 minutes penalty from Abdoulie Gassama to seal all three points against Linguère. Gassama’s 19th goal for CasaSports has moved him to the top chart of the golden boot after hitting the back of the net thrice in six matches.

Ismaila Ceesay was the hero in the derby de La Banlieue against AS Pikine. The loanee from Marimoo FC was voted the man of the match. Ceesay doubled Guédiawaye FC’s lead in the 52nd minute with a header. Ceesay was making his second season start, and it was the first time he had been handed a starting berth. The results against their bitter rivals saw the Yellow-Blue move to second position after three wins.

Former Real de Banjul striker Mamadi Ngum opened his goal-scoring account when he gave Sonacos the lead away to GenerationFoot. Pape Diallo equalized for the host in the 90th minute. Alieu Jammeh, formerly of Dibba Oil, was handed a debut in Dakar Sc – Teungueth FC 0-0 game.

Lamin Jallow returned from suspension to play 71 minutes in Adanaspor’s 2-1 win over Altinotdu FK.

Yusupha Njie played the full throttle in Boavista Porto’s 3-2 win over BSAD in the Allianz Cup.
