Piston Mayele’s brace made the difference as Young Africans from Tanzania defeated hosts Rivers United 2-0 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo on Sunday evening during the first leg of the CAF confederations cup quarter-final game. After a first-half barren draw, Mayele broke the deadlock in the 74th minute before completing his brace seven minutes later to give the Tanzanians an enormous advantage going into the second leg in Dar es Salaam. Having conceded two goals at home, Rivers United would need to score three goals without a reply in Dar es Salaam next weekend to qualify for the next round. Nine minutes into the game, Rivers United had the first attempt on goal with Ebube Duru’s cross, wrongly hit by Nwagua Nyima in the opponent’s box.
