Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) sides Plateau United and Kano Pillars were on Saturday eliminated from their respective continental competitions after both sides failed to overturn first leg deficits in their second leg ties.
In the Total CAF Champions League, Plateau United, playing at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam held hosts Simba Sports Club of Tanzania to a 0-0 draw which proved insufficient to see the team through.
United were forced to play without the duo of Sunday Adetunji and Ibrahim Abubakar Babawo who were pulled out in the last minute for testing positive to Covid-19. In spite of their endeavour, United were made to rue their 0-1 loss at home to the Tanzanians last weekend as they exit the competition 0-1 on aggregate.
