Enyimba International Football Club of Aba advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2020/2021 CAF Confederation Cup alongside visiting Orlando Pirates of South Africa on Wednesday.
Cyril Olisema’s goal in added time of second half gave Enyimba a 1-0 win at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba.
The win ensured Enyimba upstaged the South African side at the top of Group A table to advance as group winners on head-to-head advantage.
Enyimba had lost 1-2 to Orlando Pirates when they met on Match Day 2 of the competition, but Wednesday’s 1-0 win was enough advantage for the Aba side.
Both sides had finished on nine points each after six matches, but head-to-head calculation came in to separate both sides.
They both go into Friday’s quarterfinals draw to know their next opponents.
The other qualifiers for the quarterfinals are Raja Casablanca of Morocco, Coton Sport of Cameroon, JS Kabylie of Algeria, ASC Jaraaf of Senegal, CS Sfaxien of Tunisia and Pyramids of Egypt.
