As Enyimba prepare for the second leg of their CAF Champions League tie against Etoile du Sahel, Completesportsnigeria.com's ADEBOYE AMOSU presents instances in the competition in the recent past to show the Nigerian champions that there should be no room for complacency as even a 3-0 first leg win has been overturned before…
NASARAWA UNITED VS AL HILAL, 2007
Nasarawa United made their debut appearance in the CAF Champions League in 2007, but failed to progress beyond the second round.
The Solid Miners won the first leg of their second round fixture against Al Hilal 3-0 at home and thought they were already through to the group stages of the competition, but Hilal rallied back to score three goals in the second leg without conceding.
The Sudanese side then won the tie 3-2 on penalties to go through to the next round.
KANO PILLARS VS AC LEOPARDS, 2011
Then Nigerian champions Kano Pillars seemed to be heading for a place in the second round of the 2011 edition of the CAF Champions League after their comprehensive 4-1 victory against Congolese side AC Leopards in the first leg.
But they were shocked by the Doliese-based club who handed them a 3-0 win in the return leg to advance on away goals.
ASEC MIMOSAS VS IWUAYANWU NATIONALE (NOW HEARTLAND), 1991
Iwuanyanwu Nationale, now Heartland, completed one of the most remarkable comebacks in the history of the CAF Champions League when they cancelled a 3-0 first leg deficit to progress into the semi-finals of the competition in 1991.
The Naze Millionaires eventually won 6-5 on penalties to zoom into the last four.
WYDAD CASABLANCA VS STATIONERY STORES, 1993
One of Africa's most successful clubsides, Wydad Casablanca, defeated Lagos darling club Stationery Stores 3-1 in their second round, first leg tie in Casablanca.
But Stores, inspired by their Ghanaian import Arthur Moses, secured a 4-1 victory at the National Stadium, Lagos to shock the North Africans.
