Aba’s Enyimba International Football Club recorded a valuable away victory on Saturday in the first leg of the second preliminary round of the 2021/2022 CAF Confederation Cup.

Cyril Olisema scored from the penalty spot three minutes from time to give Enyimba a precious away victory over Senegalese ASC Diambars in Thiès.

The match was on its way to a sterile stalemate until the two-time African champions swept them away.

They got a penalty after 87 minutes, and Olisema kept his nerves to give the People’s Elephants the winner of the match.

The Algerian JS Kabylie returned from neighboring Morocco with a 1-0 victory over AS FAR in Rabat.

Ali Haroun’s shot was deflected by FAR defender Mohamed Moufid to give JS Kabylie the lead after 19 minutes.

The visitors held on against the Moroccans’ many attempts to find an equalizer to emerge victorious.

The return match will take place in Tizi Ouzou on October 23 (www.)
