Goal from Red-hot striker Adama Jammeh and Ebrima Colley yesterday gave the Young Scorpions a first-leg advantage in Banjul.
Adama first unlocked the Squirrels’ defence before Colley added a second from a free-kick outside the box.
Benin responded to pull a goal back going into the break with little to report about in the second-half.
Gambia now travels for the second-leg hoping to finish off Benin to reach the next round.
