Nigeria’s Kano Pillars trounced Malakia of South Sudan 3-0 Saturday at home to qualify for the first round of the CAF Champions League 5-0 on aggregate.

Pillars opened scoring in the 38th minute through striker Gambo Muhammed inside a packed Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.

The experienced striker then doubled his team’s lead a minute to full time after Malakia put up a resolute display after the interval.

Adamu Hassan scored Pillars third goal in stoppage time to further break the resistance of the team from South Sudan.

The four-time Nigerian champions will now play against the winners of the match-up between Tetouan of Morocco and Olympique de Bamako of Mali in the next round of the competition in mid-March.
