Enyimba defeated Rivers United 1-0 in the first leg at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba, Abia State yesterday 14 February.

The 15 winners of the play-off round will advance to the group stage to join RS Berkane, who advanced directly to the group stage as the winners of the first round with the best CAF five-year ranking following the withdrawal of FC Gazelle of Chad from the competition after being transferred from the Champions League.

Montgomery, a FIFA-badged referee-emeritus, will be assisted by Gambia’s Omar Sallah (referee), Omar Darboe (assistant referee #1), Sulayman Sosseh (assistant referee #2) and Lamin N. Jammeh (fourth official), and Nigeria’s Ozi Salami Adbulrahim Onimisi.

It will be Mongomery’s second match, having served as a commissioner in the first round qualifying tie between Ivory Coast’s Racing Club Abidjan and Togo’s ASKO Kara on 29 November 2020.

Racing won the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League match 1-0 in Abidjan.
