Two time CAF Champions League winner Enyimba International Football Club on Wednesday afternoon fell to a 3-0 Defeat in the CAF champions league qualifying round first leg tie against Al-Merreikh in Omdurman.
The People’s Elephant fell behind just 7th minutes into the game following a strike from Saif Terry put the Sudanese team ahead after receving a perfect when long ball and ran past two Enyimba centre backs before he slotted past the on rushing Bassa Djeri.
Despite having large share of possession Enyimba meanwhile failed to translate it into goals due to their lack of decision making in the final third.
Saif Terry made it 2-0 just before the halftime break before completing his hattrick on the stroke of 90 minutes to inflict pains in the heart of Enyimba supporters.
Enyimba have a huge mountain to climb as they will look to over turn a three goal deficit next week at the Aba Stadium in the reverse fixture.
