For the first time, Nigeria’s national cup winners will not have an opportunity to go continental even as the Aiteo Cup reaches the quarter finals stage.
Even by the time the quarter-finals are played on Wednesday, the draw for the CAF Confederation Cup draw would have been concluded more than 24 hours earlier.
Apparently to avert Nigeria’s forfeiture of the second slot, the fourth placed Kwara United in the NPFL have been drafted to join eligible Remo Stars.
It is indeed a lucky dip for Kwara United who are already out of the Aiteo Cup. The remaining fixtures of the competition run thus:
