Since Enyimba International won the Federation Cup on penalties, their comeback to the domestic scene was unsuccessful.

The People’s Elephant advanced through the round of 16 in penalty shootouts (5-4) despite the game ending without a goal for the entirety of it.

Enyimba’s 5-4 result means that Rivers United has been eliminated from two important trophies in as many days.
