CAF Champions League: Nigeria's Plateau United Knocked Out

MC Alger hit six past abysmal MFM FC

Impressively, the 22-year-old, who was guilty of conceding cheap goals in the home loss to Banjul Hawks of The Gambia in the Preliminary Round, redeemed himself to play a key role in United's progress.

The NPFL champions need to win by at least 2-0 today to advance to the money-spinning stage of the Champions League after they lost 4-2 in the first leg.

The home team scored in the 24th minute of the game through Tosin Omoleye to set the tone for an interesting game. The former African club champions had won the first leg 2-0 away in Cotonou last week.

"However, I commend Plateau United for their fighting spirit and commitment", he said.
