FC Nouadhibou 0 Enugu Rangers 0: Flying Antelopes secure away point
The Nigerians earned their first point of the group stage after sharing the spoils with the Mauritanian side
Enugu Rangers played out a 0-0 draw with FC Nouadhibou in Sunday’s Caf Confederation Cup Group A clash.
After defeats in their last two games, the Flying Antelopes rescued their qualification hopes with a point at the Stade Cheikha Ould Boidiya, Nouakchott.
In the contest where scoring chances were few, the hosts blew away a glorious chance to take the lead after 18 minutes with Sidi Abdoullah failing to beat goalkeeper Nana Bonsu after being sent through on goal.
Rangers had more scoring chances but none sailed into the net. First, Uwadiegwu Ugu’s long range effort narrowly missed target before Kingsley Eleje’s 20-yard freekick did little to threaten Nouadhibou’s goalkeeper.
In the second half, the Flying Antelopes bungled several chances with poor finishing their major undoing.

Despite the away point, they sit in third position in Group A and they host the Mauritanians in the reverse fixture on January 12.
Anything for short of victory Salisu Yusuf’s men at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium will put an end to their chase for continental glory.
