Two-time African champions, Enyimba have qualified for the second round of the 2016 CAF Champions League.
Although Paul Aigbogun’s men were beaten 2-1 by Vital’O at the Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium, Bujumbura they qualified 6-2 on aggregate having completed the job in the first round.
With one leg already in the next round, Enyimba put in a great show and were rewarded in the 28th minute courtesy Ikechukwu Ibenegbu’s strike.
The Nigeria international headed in a well-tailored cross from Joseph Osadiaye to put his side ahead. The lead was short-lived two minutes later as Shasiri Nahimana pulled one back for the hosts.
And with 25 minutes to the end of the game, the hosts snatched the winner courtesy Laudit Mavugo with a simple tap in inside the six yard.
With this victory, Enyimba will face the winner between Étoile du Sahel and Olympique Khouribga.
