Nigeria Premier Football League Super 6 recorded a surprise on Sunday as Remo Stars came from behind to secure a champions league football next season.

The Ikenne-based club played in the CAF Confederation Cup last season but lost in the first round to FAR Rabat of Morocco 2-1 on aggregate.

The Sky Blues boys faced Bendel Insurance in the final game of the Super 6 and recorded a narrow 1-0 victory.

Qudus Akanni netted the only goal of the game in the 36th minute of the keenly contested encounter.

Insurance who did not lose in the regular league season fell to another defeat against Remo Stars after losing to Rivers United on the day of the league playoff. The Benin Arsenal ended up finishing fifth on the log with just three points in 5 games.

The result secured Remo Stars a champions league slot next season.
