Enyimba won the 2022/23 Nigeria Professional Football League for the ninth time in their history after a 1-1 tie with River United in the final game of the Super Six in Lagos.
The People’s Elephant finished the NPFL Super Six playoffs with nine points from five games after drawing with the 2022 champions, River United.
Due to sloppy defending by United, the two-time CAF Champions League winners took the lead against the Port Harcourt-based club through Ekenne Awazie six minutes before the break.
River United responded with a strong comeback, tying the game three minutes after the break through Nyima Nwagua.
With this result, Enyimba will once again represent Nigeria in the CAF Champions League next season.
Remo Stars finished with the same points as Enyimba but finished second due to a worse goal difference.
They will, however, compete in the CAF Champions League for the first time as Nigeria’s second representative.
Rivers United will play in the CAF Confederation Cup next season after finishing third in the Super Six.
