Nigeria’s Enyimba finished off their African Champions League campaign with a 3-1 over South African side Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday.

The result restored a certain amount of pride for Enyimba who had already missed out on the chance of reaching the semi-finals.

Despite the loss South African champions Sundowns had already done enough to finish top of Group B and seal a place in the last four.

Enyimba took the lead through John Uche after 24 minutes, before Percy Tau equalised for the South African champions seven minutes later.

Mfon Udoh then scored either side of half-time, the second from the penalty spot, to seal the win.

That brace takes his tally to nine for the tournament this season – maintaining his position as the top scorer in the 2016 Champions League.

Egypt’s Zamalek finished as runners-up in group reduced to three sides after the disqualification of Algeria’s Entente Setif.
