Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Plateau United have started their campaign in the CAF Champions League (CCL) on a winning note.

The Jos based club sends warning to other contenders in Africa’s most prestigious club competition with an emphatic 3-0 win against Eding Sport of Cameroon on Sunday.

Plateau United scored three un-replied goals against the Cameroonian club in a fixture they dominated all through the game.

Elijah Ogene set the tone for the day; scoring the opening goal for Plateau United. That turned out to be the only goal of the first half.

In the second half, very little changed until the dying stages of the game when Plateau United could get two quick goals.


With a 3-0 lead from the first leg, Plateau United are in good stead to qualify for the next round of Africa’s biggest club competition.

While Plateau United started on a winning streak, it was not the same for Nigeria’s representative in the second tier CAF Confederation Cup, Akwa United FC.

The Uyo-based team began their campaign in Uyo on a losing note on Sunday, by losing 1-2 in the first round, first leg match against Hawks of Gambia.
