CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: ENYIMBA RUN RIOT WITH GOALS

Nigerian champions, Enyimba atoned for the elimination of Kano Pillars from the CAF Champions League by beating Burkina Faso’s Rahimo to progress in the competition.

The Nigerian champions who had to play behind close doors on account of safety concerns at their home ground overturned a 0-1 deficit to advance on 5-1 aggregate.  

Reuben Bala opened the scoring in the 32nd minute after the home side had had an earlier goal cancelled.

They doubled the score line in the second half through Stanley Okorom early in the second half while Stanley Dimgba made it 3-0 in the 79th minute.

Ten minutes a later Dimgba was again on the scorers’ sheet. Bala scored in the 86th minute making the last four minutes of the game a fruitful one for Enyimba.

 Enyimba now await the winners of Rayon Sports of Rwanda and Al-Hilal Omdurman of Sudan.  The first-leg between the two ended 1-1 in Kigali.
