Enyimba Suffers Defeat to Al Ahli Benghazi in Opening Round of CAF Champions League

Enyimba, a dominant force with nine Nigerian league titles to their name, have seen their CAF Champions League campaign come to an end after facing off against Libya’s Al Ahli Benghazi.

In an intense showdown at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba on Sunday, the Nigerian side and their Libyan counterparts played to a goalless draw.

Renowned as ‘The People’s Elephants,’ Enyimba had previously suffered a 4-3 defeat in the first leg against Al-Ahli.

Hinging on the need for two goals to secure advancement to the next stage of the competition, the team based in Aba struggled to find the back of the net before the final whistle blew.

This defeat marks an unprecedented occurrence for the Nigerian champions, as it’s the first time they have been eliminated in the preliminary round of the tournament.

Enyimba’s legacy boasts two championship victories, solidifying their position as the sole Nigerian football club to have achieved such a feat.
