Nigeria’s flag bearers in the CAF Champions League, Rivers United have been dumped out of the opposition, after the team raised the expectation of many having secured a solid 3-0 win in their first leg encounter against the Sudanese outfit, Al-Merrikh in Port Harcourt a week ago.
Al-Merreikh on Saturday pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in the Caf Champions League as of late to see off Nigerian side Rivers United 4-3 on total scoreline
Be that as it may, having been welcomed with a threatening gathering in Omdurman, the Nigeria Professional Football League side fell like a pack of cards losing 4-0 to their hosts on Saturday night.
Bakri Al Madina got a first-half hat-trick and substitute Mohamed Abdulrahman score the fourth as The Red Devils pawed their way once again from a 3-0 deficit in the first leg in Nigeria seven days back to dispatch Rivers United.
The host got their immeasurably essential fourth goal in the second half as they advanced with a 4-3 total aggregate while Rivers United will now settle to play in the second-level CAF Confederation Cup.
