Two time former CAF Champions League champions Enyimba FC of Aba are through to the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup on away goals rule after drawing 0-0 against Bidvest Wits of South Africa in Calabar.

The first leg ended 1-1 in South Africa , and the Nigerians could have grabbed a win but a missed penalty by Austin Oladapo ensured ten men Bidvest Wits didn’t lose the game which was keenly contested by both teams.

Enyimba missed several chances to win the game while the visitors also threatened with their major highlight coming eight minutes from full time where they missed a two against one situation in the box of Enyimba.

Nigeria are sure to have one team in the hat when the draw is made on Friday for the group stages of CAF second most prestigious club competition, which is second to the CAF Champions League.
