Things are now getting worse for Rivers United on the continent. They were extremely wasteful in front of goal.

The Port Harcourt club were beaten 2-0 by their visitors Club Africain in a matchday 5 tie of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Rivers United have now conceded two goals at home in the continent for the first time since March 2007 - a 3-2 win over Banjul Hawks.

After a barren first half on a water-soaked pitch following a heavy downpour, Manoubi Hadeed put the Tunisian side ahead in the 63rd minute from a free kick.

Further damage to the home side’s chances was inflicted when team captain Festus Austin scored an own goal in the 89th minute of the Group A Match Day 5 fixture to gift Club Africain, who’s first choice goalkeeper was stretchered off the pitch after suffering a serious injury.

Club Africain, who have nine points from five matches and host KCCA in the Match Day 6 fixture same day, look to have already qualified for the knockout stage.

Rivers United will face FUS Rabat away on July 7 in their last match of the group phase, needing to win to have a chance of advancing to the quarter-finals.
