CAFCL: Akwa United eliminated

Akwa United of Uyo have been eliminated from the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League.

The Nigeria Professional Football League champions were eliminated by Algeria’s Ligue 1 champions, CR Belouizdad.

They failed to build on their preliminary round first-leg advantage as they conceded two late goals in Algeria late on Sunday.

Hosts CR Belouizdad showed resilience to overturn the one-goal deficit they suffered in Nigeria in the first leg at the Omar Hamadi Stadium.

Akwa United tried to resist the threats of their hosts as both teams settled for a goalless first 45 minutes.

But Hicham Khalfallah’s effort in the 72nd minute broke the deadlock in Algiers and Chemseddine Nessakh’s 84th-minute goal sealed their ticket for the next round.

Belouizdad will now face ASEC Mimosas in the second preliminary round after the Ivory Coast giants defeated Senegal’s Teungueth 2-0 on aggregate.

The next round of the Champions League games are scheduled to take place between October 15 and 17, while the second leg will be from October 22 to 24.
