Enyimba lost their African Football League first-leg match 1-0 to Wydad Casablanca at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Sunday and will now have to win in Morocco next weekend to get through to the semi-finals.
The only goal of the match came from a first-half penalty, with Yahya Jabrane expertly converting from the spot past Enyimba captain and goalkeeper, Ojo Olorunleke, in the 39th minute.
Coach Finidi George was back on the bench after national team duties with the Super Eagles and he started a strong 11, which included breakout Flying Eagles midfielder Daniel Daga.
Enyimba created some chances, but they were tepid in the final third and rushed their chances when they came.
