Kano Pillars yesterday crashed out of this year’s CAF Champions League despite beating Morocco’s Moghreb Tetouan 2-1 at the Sani Abacha Stadium.
With the result, Kano Pillars crashed out of the tournament 5-2 on aggregate having lost the first leg in Morocco 4-0.
Poor finishing robbed Pillars of a more convincing win, while the Moroccan champions made the most of their chances.
Moghreb Tetouan took the lead in the 33rd minute through Mouchine Iajour, who scored a hat-trick in the first encounter.
However, Pillars drew level after 61 minutes through Tony Edjomareigwe.
The home team scored again a minute from full time through Rabiu Ali, who dribbled his way into the box before he fired home.
Pillars needed to score six additional goals to advance to the second round of the competition.
Pillars were also eliminated from the tournament last year in the preliminary round by AS Vita of DR Congo.
Vita Club won the first leg 3-1, but lost 2-1 in Kano to the Nigerian club.
