Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champion, Enyimba, suffered a 1-0 loss to Rahimo of Burkina Faso in their CAF Champions League first round game played on Saturday while CAF Confederation Cup campaigners, Niger Tornadoes also suffered a shock home loss against  little known Santoba Conakry of Guinea.

Issouf Zonon was the match winner for hosts Rahimo against the eight-time Nigeria champions.

Enyimba goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai pulled off several top saves to ensure his team still has a chance of overturning this slim loss when the ‘People’s Elephant’ host the return leg in Aba in a fortnight.

Niger Tornadoes lost 2-1 at home to minnows from Guinea and will have to secure an away win to retain any chance of progressing in the competition.
