Al Hilal held two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba to a goalless result in Aba, in the first-leg of their first round qualifying match.
Enyimba couldn’t break the resolute defence of the visitors despite creating several clear cut chances.
Al-Hilal recorded a clean sheet in Nigeria for the first time since the Quarter final of the 1987 CAF Champions League where Leventis United were knocked out after a 2-1 first leg loss. #CAFCL
