Enyimba Wins, Akwa United Stumble in Confederation Cup Matches

Enyimba FC made light work of Energie Sports in the CAF Confederation first-leg, first round match, winning 2-0 at the Stade de l’Amitié in Cotonou.

Two first half goals; an own goal and an Austin Oladapo goal, in the opening 9 minutes deflated the hopes of the home side.

Enyimba even had the luxury of a missed penalty on 80 minutes but still ran out comfortable winners on their return to the continent, after a season’s absence.


In another CAF Confederation Cup game involving Akwa United and Al-Ittihad, the NPFL side succumbed to a late winner on the 83rd minute in a tight encounter at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri in Sfax, Tunisia.

Latest Super Eagles invitee, Gabriel Okechukwu made a substitute’s appearance in the game but Abdul Maikaba’s men could not find a leveler.

The second leg matches comes up on 18 March.
