Enyimba suffered 4-1 to Pyramids FC of Egypt in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup quater-final tie in Cairo on Sunday.
The Aba Elephants gave themselves a bright start to the match by taking the lead inside the opening 2 minutes.
Striker Victor Mbaoma capitalised on error from Pyramids goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy to score important away goal for the Nigerian side.
Poor defending from Enyimba allowed the Egyptians to come from behind and recorded an emphatic win.
Ramadan Robhi robbed Enyimba’s defender Nelson Ogbonnaya off the possession on the edge of the area to score the equalizer on the 21st minute.
Abdallah El Said completed the turning around by adding the second few minutes later.
Another defensive blunders in the second half gifted Ibrahim Adel opportunities to make it 4-1.
The home side would have scored two more before the final, if not for the intervention of Super Eagles goalkeeper John Noble.
Recalled two time African champions also lost all their away matches in the Group phase of the competition.
The reverse fixture will take place next week Sunday with Enyimba needing to score three goals without conceding to advance into the semi-finals.
