CAFCC: Akwa United Lose To Al Hilal, Walk Tight Rope

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigerian club Akwa United went down to a 2-0 defeat against Sudanese club Al Hilal in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup play-off tie in Omdurman on Sunday, reports.

Geovani put the home team ahead in the 20th minute after he was set up by Sadiq Shalash.

Akwa United struggled to cope with the pace of the game and went further behind five minutes later with Hussein Jeraf nodding home after he was left unmarked inside the box.

The Uyo club settled down later into the game but were unable reduce the deficit.

They will now hope to overturn the deficit in the reverse fixture on April 18 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

The overall winner of the contest will proceed to the group stages of the competition.
