Rivers United on Sunday took a step closer to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup after defeating Rayon Sports of Rwanda 2-0 in Port Harcourt, ensuring the home front has become a fort on the Continent.
A goal in each half from Emeka Atuloma and Guy Kuemian gave Fort Port Harcourt spectators something to cheer about ahead of the second leg tie this weekend in Rwanda.
It would have been 3-0 in the 87th minute when the Rwanda team goalkeeper spills the ball for Kuemian, but the Ivorian kicks the air with empty net gaping.
United are the only Nigerian team on the continent after the elimination of Rangers, who lost 5-2 on aggregate to Zesco United at the weekend.
