Enyimba defeated Smouha of Egypt 1-0 in Aba on Sunday in a CAF Champions League first round first leg match.

 The Egyptian team came with a plan to pick a draw, but Enyimba got the victory they deserved.

 Enyimba continued to mount pressure which yielded result in the 55th minute, when substitute Rapahel Boumsong headed in Nonso Okonkwo’s cross.

 Enyimba set the ball rolling as early as fourth minute when Kingsley Sokari powered in a 25-yard shot off Peter Onyekachi’s pass but Smouha goalkeeper Mahdy Soluman punched it away.

 The Egyptian team Smouha sat back in their defence with Enyimba doing all the attack.

 Daniel Etor’s effort in the 20th minute came off the goal post.

 On the half hour mark, Etor took out three Smouha players in front of the box but could not get a return pass from Aloma who was in a good position waiting for the ball.

 In the 46th minute, Smouha missed a chance to take the lead through Amr Elmen who dribbled past skipper Chinedu Udoji, but fail to hit the target.
