CAF Confed Cup: Enyimba Settles For Two-Goal Advantage Over TS Galaxy

Two time African Champions League winners, Enyimba international are a step closer to the Group stage of the CAF Confederation cup after getting the better of TS Galaxy by 2-0 in Aba.

Former Remo Stars skipper, Victor Mbaoma gave the People's Elephant a confident start heading home a cross from Abdulrahman Bashir with just seven minutes into the encounter.
Possession based football from Galaxy had the Nigerians chasing shadows, as Tshegofatso Nyama squandered a clear chance with their opposite number in no man’s land. Momentum remained with Galaxy, who had Tshepo Chaine’s effort from Mosha Gaolaolwe’s cross ruled out for offside by the assistant referee on the brink of halftime.

Enyimba increased their lead moments in the second half Martin Ursule got on the end of a good move for an exquisite finish past Ludwe Mpakumpaku.

The Nigeria League champions maintained balance for a first-leg victory with the return leg set for Mbombela next weekend.
