Enyimba have crashed out from this year’s CAF Champions League following a 1-0 loss to their hosts Al Hilal of Sudan in the second leg of their first round encounter in Omdurman on Sunday.
The first leg in Aba had ended in a 0-0 draw and the Aba Elephants only needed to win or secure a score draw.
The hosts scored the winning goal in the second half after either team failed to register a goal before the break.
The Enyimba will now drop down to the CAF Confederation Cup playoffs following the loss.
In the Confederations Cup, Enugu Rangers defeated AS Pelican of Gabon 3-1 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium as they progressed 4-3 on aggregate as they qualified for the playoffs.
