*Enyimba ready to ruffle Buffles Borgou
Kano Pillars made a bright start to the their CAF champions league campaign by beating Al-Malakia 2-0 in the first round elimination match decided yesterday in Juba South Sudan.
Christian Obiazor and Gambo Muhammed scored both goals, after a goalless first half.
But four minutes into the restart, Gambo ensured Kano Pillars got their noses in front.
In the 63rd minute, Obiozor doubled the lead for the Nigerian champions to help Kano secure only their second away win in Africa’s biggest club competition.
The last time Kano Pillars won an away game in the Caf Champions League was in January 2011 when they defeated Liberia’s Mighty Barrolle 2-1 in Buchanan.
Nigeria’s other representative, Enyimba of Aba are ready to play against Buffles Borgu of Benin Republic today in Cotonou. Enyimba two times winner of the champions league, are expected to roll over the relatively unknown Borgu who are making their maiden appearance in the championship.
