Remo Stars sealed an easy passage to the next round of the Naija Super 8 with another brilliant performance, this time against neighbors Shooting Stars.

CAF Champions League-bound Remo Stars have continued from where they stopped in the NPFL Super 6 after claiming more bragging rights against Shooting Stars in Eket. 

Remo proved just too good for their Southwestern neighbours following a 3-0 thrashing in the Naija Super 8 Playoffs on Friday evening. 

Seun Ogunribide was one of the stars of the day as the Ikenne-based Stars put on a show to seal a ticket to the next round.

It was his brilliant work that led to the opening goal after just seven minutes as Andy Okpe gave the Sky Blues a deserved lead. 

Four minutes later, Boniface Nwaeze doubled the lead following another excellent work from that man Oguniribide to give Remo a comfortable lead at the break. 

In the second half, Daniel Ogunmodede’s men wrapped up the win when Samuel Anakwe made it 3-0 with 16 minutes left to play. 

It was a dominant win for the Remo boys, who recently sealed a historic CAF Champions League spot after a brilliant second-place finish in the NPFL Super 6 in Lagos.
