Published on: 23 September 2018

Enyimba secured a place in the semi-final of the CAF Confederation Cup following an emphatic 5-1 win against Rwanda’s Rayon Sports in the second leg of their quarter-final fixture in Aba on Sunday.

The People’s Elephant progressed on a 5-1 aggregate scoreline having held their visitors to a 0-0 draw in the first leg last Sunday.

Rayon Sports silenced the home fans when Caleb Bimenyimana grabbed the equaliser in the 25th minute.

Enyimba took control afterwards with left-back Ikouwen Udoh firing them ahead again in the 29th minute and Sunday Adetunji getting the third goal two minutes after the break.

Joseph Osadiaye netted the fourth goal from a deflected free kick two minutes before the hour mark.

Isiaka Oladuntoye made the victory more emphatic by grabbing the fifth goal in the 78th minute tapping the ball home from close range.

Usman Abdallah’s men will now meet the winner of the game between Morocco’s Raja Casablanca and CARA Brazzaville of Congo in the semi-final next month.
