–In CAF Confed Cup Games
It was a weekend of mixed fortunes for the two Nigerian representatives in the CAF Confederation Cup campaign as Warri Wolves played out a disappointing goaless draw with visiting Athletique Bizertin of Tunisia in the first leg of the second round game at the Warri City Stadium.
In Harare, Zimbabwe, Nigeria’s other flag bearers, Bayelsa United suffered a 0-1 defeat in the hands of How Mine FC also in the first leg of the second games.
Wolves will need a score draw in the reverse fixture in Tunis next weekend to go through while Bayelsa United will need to overturn the 1-0 deficit in the return leg match slated for Sapele Stadium next week to qualify for the return leg match.
Warri Wolves were wasteful in front of goal without talismanic striker, Etebo Oghenekaro undergoing trials in Italy.
The Seasiders now have a tall mountain to climb in the second leg in Tunis just as Bayelsa United will need an outright 2-0 win to go through.
