Muttasem Ballah El Taib’s first half strike decided the tie between Al Ahly Benghazi and Enyimba in the penultimate group A game in the CAF Confederation Cup.
El Taib scored in the 40th minute, breaking through a resilient Enyimba defence to give his side a shot at a quarter-final spot.
The NPFL side were reduced to 10 men in the 74th minute after Timothy Danladi was giving his marching orders, but Enyimba managed to keep their hosts at bay and settled for the odd goal defeat.
