Big Bullets were beaten 4-0 by Al Hilal in the first leg of their CAF Champions League first round tie.

Al Hilal’s convincing victory means they are on the verge of reaching the group stage of the CAF Champions League after hammering Big Bullets 4-0 in the first leg of their first-round tie on Sunday.

A tough lesson for the Malawian outfit Big Bullets in Sudan at the Omdurman Stadium, with Mudathir Careca scoring twice in a one-sided affair.

Sierra Leone international, David Simbo told this medium just after the match that he expect his side to make it through to the group stage after thrashing their Malawian counterparts.

“We are one step closer to the group stage, Bullets will have to score five goals without any reply from us and that is a task very difficult, proud of my teammates and very excited.” he said.

The Champions from Malawi will have to pull off an astonishing fightback in the second leg on April 2 if they are to remain in the competition.

Meanwhile, the three-time CAF Confederation Cup winners CS Sfaxien are also in complete control of their first round tie against AC Semassi after coasting to a 5-0 away victory.

The Tunisian side ruthlessly swept aside Sfaxien, who had no answer as the visitors took complete control of the tie.

Mohamed Meftah scored twice as USM Alger consigned AS Pikine to a 5-1 first-leg hammering and will be expected to finish off the job in Senegal next month.

Congolese club AC Leopards hold a slender 1-0 advantage after the first leg of their tie at Gor Mahia.

Cesair Ganze scored the only goal of the game to consign the Kenyan champions to defeat, but it is still all to play for ahead of the return leg.

Two-time winners Enyimba were 1-0 winners in their first leg at home to Smouha while Esperance de Tunis won by the same scoreline at Cosmos de Bafia.
