Debutants Sunshine Stars have carved out a big reputation for themselves as they defeated JS Kabylie 2-1 in a CAF Confederation Cup game in Algeria at the weekend.
The Nigerians came from a goal down to defeat the former champions in front of their fans, remaining top of Group B with six points.
Salim Hanifi scored for the hosts before Emmanuel Sunday found an equaliser and then Sakibu Atanda scored the winner 14 minutes before full time.
In the Champions League, Enyimba made up for their draw on day one with a 3-2 defeat of Cameroon’s Coton Sport in Garoua.
The Aba Millionaires went 2-0 ahead with goals from Uche Kalu and Chidozie Johnson but the hosts clawed back as Chardin Reginal Mfoutou scored just after the break and then substitute Idrissa Seydou put them level.
It was Kalu who scored the winner five minutes before the end to send the Nigerians top of Group A with four points.
“I’m very happy to have scored two goals here. We came here to win and we did it. Now we are top of the group so let’s see what happens in our remaining games,” Kalu was quoted by Fifa.com.
