Rivers United 2-1 Al Masry: First-Half Goals Give Pride of Rivers the Edge - TotalEnergies CAFCC

By Charles Mayuku - First-half goals from Uche Onwuansanya and Ishaq Kayode earned Rivers United a TotalEnergies CAF Confederations cup additional playoff round first leg win, although Mohamed Antar's 27th minute goal had given the Egyptians hope.

Match in brief

The home side started the brighter and were rewarded after twenty five minutes, Uche Onwuansanya following up to rifle in a low shot from a Malachi Ohawume's pass. Al Masry sports club drew level almost immediately when Mohamed Antar against the run of play found the back of the net. Rivers United found their rhythm and restored their lead when Ishaq Kayode was allowed to get on the end of Malachi Ohawume's flick to slam in from within range.


Stanley Eguma, Rivers United Technical Manager: "It is a narrow win but I think it is not yet over. We will go back to Cairo and continue the search for goals. We know it's going to be difficult but we will not go there to defend, we will go there to ensure that we score goals as we did today because it is only goals that will make us to qualify."

What's next

The second leg takes place at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria, Egypt on Sunday 5th December 2021.
