Nigerian Premier League (NPL) champions Dolphins defeated Sony de Ela Nguema 3-0 in the first leg of their Caf Champions League first round game at the Estadio de Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on Sunday.
Goals from Emma Nwachi, Chidi Osuchukwu and Ifeanyi Egwim ensured that the Port Harcourt side have almost secured their qualification into the second round ahead of the return leg.
The game was reported to have turned fractious when the visitors went two goals up in the first half as the home fans attacked the Nigerian fans in the stands.
It took 15 minutes before police could calm the nerves of the home fans, but the game continued and the scoreline was 3-0 before the final whistle.
Dolphins will host the return leg in two weeks time, the Equatorial Guinea club side making the trip to Nigeria.
