Nigerian clubs shone in continental football competitions last weekend with none of them losing their match.
In the CAF Champions League, Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) champions Rivers United defeated Liberian side Watanga FC 3-0 in the first leg of the qualifying game.
Two first-half goals from Kenechukwu Agu and Ebube Duru gave the Pride of Rivers a good start to the game. Paul Acquah later scored early in the second half at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt to wrap up the show.
The second leg of the encounter is billed for September 18 at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia.
