Aduana Stars’ away days continued as AS Vita condemned them to a second consecutive defeat on the road with a 2-0 win courtesy a brace from lethal forward Jean-Marc Makusu Mundele.
Here are four things we learned from the epic clash.
Makusu Mundele proved decisive again
It took Makusu, one of the AS Vita’s star men in the title winning feat, scoring 24 goals in the process to get them the much needed points on the day.
He was a threat to the Aduana Stars rearguard and made life very difficult for them and crowned a good display with his brace that placed his club in a pole position to advance to the semis of the competition. 
His brace against the Ghanaian champions were his sixth in the competition. Should AS Vita excel this campaign, they will surely need Makusu Mundele playing on top of his game for he is the man for the big occasion.
His work-rate and ability has never been in question but add to that regular goals, and you are dealing with one of the best in the business.
Aduana are still work in progress
Common logic decrees that any side that overhauls their squad ahead of a new season tends to struggle in the early part of the season. 
Relationships take time to strike up and setups are often subject to change as managers search for a winning formula.
For Yatshuashi’s Aduana, who made a string of signings before the new season that has ultimately proven to be the case in the most emphatic of ways in recent weeks.
Slow at the back, overwhelmed in midfield and practically non-existent up front, Aduana Stars need time to present a formidable side to compete on the bigger stage.
What is wrong with Joseph Addo?
 He was arguably one of the best goalkeepers on the local scene last season. His consistent spellbindingly displays for Aduana Stars ensured he earned a place in Coach Kwasi Appiah’s Black Stars’ team. 
Quite paradoxically, the national star has failed to replicate the form that made him the club’s most trusted netminder as he continues to be his club’s weakest link in the competition. 
He was maligned for two of the three goals the club conceded against Raja Casablanca in that 3 all stalemate and was yet again criticised for the cheap goal he conceded when AS Vita visited the NAB Park few days ago. Sunday’s game was no different as the experienced Addo once again at the centre of Aduana’s loss for conceding two ‘cheap’ goals. 
No one seems to know why he is playing with diffidence in recent times. What could be the reason?
Aduana Stars’ fate out of their hands
With Aduana Stars’ loss and Raja Casablanca’s emphatic victory over Asec Mimosas, the Ghanaians’ chances of advancing from the group is increasingly becoming unlikely. 
Raja Casablanca maintains the top spot with 8 points with AS Vita following with 7 points. With 4 points, Aduana Stars will need to win their remaining two games and hope results among the other clubs go in their favour to make it to the semis.
It looks unlikely but premature to rule them out though. There is everything to play in the group.
