Nigeria Professional Football League champions Enyimba fell to a 4-3 defeat against AL Ahli Benghazi of Libya last night after a series of poor defending.

Chijioke Mbaoma gave Enyimba the lead in the fourth minute but the hosts equalized five minutes later before Imo Obot scored an own goal three minutes before the break to hand AL Ahli the lead for the first time in the game.

Eze Ekwutoziam restored parity for the Peoples Elephants a minute before the hour mark but the home team restored their lead in the 75th minute before Enyimba once again equalized with substitute Murphy Ndukwu poking home from close range five minutes from time.

Al Ahly Benghazi netted the winning goal deep into stoppage time, with both teams to clash again in the reverse fixture next weekend.

The other Nigerian representative at the competition Remo Stars lost 1-0 to Medeama SC of Ghana at the Cape Coast Stadium.
