Congolese club AC Leopard thrashed Nigeria's only surviving team on the continent Warri Wolves 3-0 in a CAF Confederation Cup first leg playoff game on Sunday.
The Nigeria team had not lost away game in this year’s competition before this match, but with this result their dream of making it to the group stage for the first time in their history hangs in the balance as they need to win by overturning the three goals they let in Congo in the reverse clash in Warri.
AC Leopard broke the deadlock in the seventh minute when Mahamane Cisse's effort beat Daniel Akpeyi in goal for Warri Wolves.
Ginelord Ndey doubled the hosts’ lead in the 28th minute.
Lakolo Pastone scored the third goal from the penalty spot in the 75th minute to complete the rout.
Mahamane Cisse then missed a glorious chance to score his second goal of the evening and AS Leopard's fourth goal when he was one-on-one with Akpeyi.
