After a scoreless first half by both teams in the third place game, Juliet Sunday’s goal was inadvertently the game’s high point.
After finishing runners-up in their respective groups, the two teams lost their Semi-final matches to the eventual finalists Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa and ASFAR FC of Morocco.
Bayelsa Queens won the third-place match, while looking forward to an epic final contest on Sunday, November 13, 2022, between the host, ASFAR FC, Morocco, and the defending CAF Women’s Champions League Competition champions.
