Bobby Clement scored the important away goal for Rangers

Two away draws from Rangers and debutants, Rivers United, as well as a surprise away defeat for Wikki Tourists and a slim victory for another debuting side, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, summarized the weekend for Nigerian teams in the continent.

CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Rangers fought the good fight to claim the important away goal, in Algeria, to boost their chances of making it to the first round.

And in Bamako, a resolute performance equally earned Rivers a goalless draw.

Rangers may have scored a vital away goal and Rivers leaving without conceding, but the battle is not over.

The duo must work hard to finish the task at home.

Results

JS Saoura (Algeria) 1-1 Rangers

Real de Bamako (Mali) 0-0 Rivers United

CAF CONFEDERATION CUP

Indeed, it turned out to be the biggest match so far for two-year old, FC Ifeanyi Ubah, who got a late goal through Cameroonian import, Tamen Medrano, to take a slim one-goal advantage into the return leg at the Port-Said Stadium.

As expected, it was a full house at the FC IfeanyiUbah International Stadium that included Governor Obiano of Anambra State.

Results

FC Ifeanyi Ubah 1-0 Al-Masry (Egypt)

RSLAF (Sierra-Leone) 2-0 Wikki Tourists
