Zamalek Flattens Enugu Rangers

Enugu Rangers’ chances of reaching the money-spinning group stages of the CAF Champions League is hanging by a thread after they were beaten 4-1 by Zamalek of Egypt in Cairo on Sunday.

The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions were behind as early as the 8th minute, after former Heartland FC of Owerri striker, Stanley Ohawuchi, opened scoring.

Zamalek scored two quick goals in the 29th and 31st minutes through Hossam Salama and Ayman Hefni, to take the tie out of the Flying Antelopes’ reach.

The Egyptians made it 4-0, before Enugu Rangers’ Bobby Clement reduced the deficit seven minutes before full time, to give the Nigerian team slim hope.

Rangers will host the second leg between March 17 and 19.
