Nigerian giants Enyimba hammered Rayon Sports 5-1 on Sunday at home to reach the African Confederation Cup semi-finals after the first leg ended goalless last week.

Stanley Dimgba scored in the 12th minute to give the hosts an early lead but Bonfilscaleb Bimenyimana restored parity in the 25th minute.

Enyimba then opened the floodgates, with Ikouwen Utin (29 minutes), Adetunji (48), Osadiaye (60), and Oladuntoye (80) giving them a comprehensive win.

The Nigerians will face Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca, who ousted Congolese side Cara Brazzaville with a 3-1 aggregate win.

The Moroccans had already a foot in the semis after beating CARA 2-1 in Brazzaville last week and they finished the job in Casablanca courtesy of a goal from Mouhcine Iajour in the 4th minute.

The semis will take place on 2 and 23 October.
