It was a day to forget for the Nigeria champions Bayelsa Queens as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to the defending champions Mamelodi Sundown Women.
Despite dominating the game, it was the South African club that netted the opening goal in the first half through Lelona Dawetti.
The dominance of Prosperity girl counted for little as Dawetti completed her brace mid-way into the second half.
All the efforts of the Nigeria team to bounce back proved abortive until later in the game when Mary-Magdalene Anjor reduced the tally for Bayelsa Queens.
The WAFU B champion will hope to bounce back in the second group game against TP Mazembe of DR Congo on Thursday at the same venue.
