CAF CC: Enyimba Faces Uphill Task In Morocco
While it looks more like a lost course, Enyimba will be hoping for an upset over hosts Raja Casablanca when the teams meet in the second leg of the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup semifinal tie Wednesday night at Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca.
The Moroccan side not only have the home advantage, but they also boast a 1-0 lead from the first leg at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba on October 3.
Abdelilah Hafidi scored the only goal of the game as the Green Eagles secured a vital victory.
That nonetheless, Enyimba goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai, who has recently shaken off an injury, stresses that all hopes are not lost.
“We are all working towards the same target which is to ensure that we surprise our opponents in the second leg. We are not deterred by our first leg result and we are all focused on the same goal which is to secure a positive result that will take us to the final in Casablanca next week.”
Raja coach Juan Carlos Garrido says his team will have to put up another strong performance to secure a place in the final.
Gabonese referee Eric Otogo-Castane will take charge of the match in Casablanca.
The aggregate winners will advance into next month’s final against either Egypt’s Al Masry or DR Congo giants AS Vita.
