Ekene Awazie lashed on to a failed clearance inside the Rivers box to hand Enyimba the lead going into the break but Nyima Nwagua restored parity for the holders early in the second half.

Rivers needed a win to retain their title, but their firepower in the second half was met by a resilient Enyimba defence. As a result, they dropped to third position on the table with nine points and will manage a place in the CAF Confederation Cup, while Enyimba and Remo will play in the CAF Champions League.
