The CAF Champions returned on Wednesday with some results from the first round fixtures.
Nigerian sole representative in the competition, Enyimba were humbled in Omdurman 3-0 by Al-Merrikh SC.
The boys from Aba will need more than a miracle in the second leg if they are to progress.
Not a good start for Asante Kotoko’s interim coach, Johnson Smith as he lost his first continental at home 1-0 to Al Hilal Omdurman of Sudan.
Like their fellow West African friend Enyimba, Asante Kotoko will also need more than a miracle in the second leg if they are to progress as we know Sudan is not a place you can easily get results having lost the first leg at home.
TP Mazembe took a bold step towards qualifying for the next round with a 2-1 away win in Gabon against AS Bouenguidi.
Libya’s Al-Alhi Benghazi played out a goalless draw at home against Tunisia’s Esperance.
South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs were held at home Primeiro de Agostos of Angola as Platinum FC of Zimbabwe won 1-0 at home against SC Simba of Tanzania.
