Having failed to reach the group phase of the Champions League in their recent attempts, Enyimba knew they needed a big win to actualize their mission this term hence they hit the ground running in Sunday’s game.
Mfon Udoh set the tone for the day with his 9th minute strike and the Aba Elephants pushed more; but were not able to increase the tally until the 56th minute when goal machine Udoh tapped in from close range.
Udoh made sure his side had a healthy lead going for second leg when he completed his hat trick in the 80th minute.
