CAF Champions League: Plateau United to battle Esperance after ASO Mandji hurdle
Plateau United will now face Esperance in the next round of the CAF Champions League after they advanced on the back of a 1-0 home win over ASO Mandji of Gabon to go through 3-2 on aggregate.
The first leg against Mandji in Franceville, Gabon, ended in a 2-2 draw last week, giving the Peace Boys an away goal advantage ahead of today's clash in Nigeria.
Today, the match winner for the Jos club inside the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja today was Haggai Katoh, who headed home from close range in the 63rd minute.
Plateau United missed several clear chances in both halves but their second half goal was enough to book a date with the Tunisian clubside in the next round.
