Nigeria’s Premier League side, Enyimba FC of Aba are in Pretoria, South Africa with the aim of taking all three points from Memalodi Sundowns and launch themselves back into reckoning for the CAF Champions League.
Having fell 1-0 in Port Harcourt to Zamalek, Enyimba need to pick up the pieces on Wednesday, when they clash with the South African champions.
Enyimba’s defender, Idris Aloma is optimistic that the Nigerian champions will win the rest of their games and qualify for the semi-final. “It’s unfortunate that Enyimba FC lost at home to Zamalek SC in their first match in the group stage but it’s now important for us to win when they play against Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday,” Aloma said. “If they secure a win away and at home against Sundowns then a semi-final berth might be insight for Enyimba FC. “The win against Abia Warriors on Wednesday will serve as booster for the team but it’s very important for the management of the club to meet the needs of the team as it’s obvious that they still have a bright chance to make the last four.”
Enyimba FC and Mamelodi Sundowns are pointless with Zamalek SC topping the three-team group with three points.
