Written by on December 23, 2020

THEY WERE INITIALLY FOUR, BUT TOMORROW ENYIMBA AND RIVERS UNITED WILL BEGIN THE PROCESS OF MAINTAINING NIGERIA’S PRESENCE IN CONFEDERATION OF AFRICAN FOOTBALL (CAF) INTER-CLUB COMPETITIONS.

NIGERIA STARTED THE CAMPAIGN FOR HONOURS IN AFRICAN CLUB FOOTBALL WITH PLATEAU UNITED, ENYIMBA, RIVERS UNITED AND KANO PILLARS, BUT PLATEAU UNITED AND PILLARS WERE ELIMINATED IN THE FIRST HURDLE, LEAVING THE PEOPLES ELEPHANT AND PRIDE OF RIVERS TO CARRY THE COUNTRY’S BANNER IN AFRICA.

TODAY AT THE AL HILAL STADIUM, OMDURMAN, ENYIMBA WILL MEET SUDAN’S AL MERREIKH IN THE FIRST LEG OF THEIR SECOND QUALIFYING ROUND CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TIE. THE WINNER OVER TWO LEGS WILL MOVE TO THE LAST STAGE OF THE JOURNEY, WHICH IS THE GROUP PHASE OF THE COMPETITION.

ENYIMBA HAS A HISTORY WITH SUDANESE CLUBS AT THE AL HILAL STADIUM IN OMDURMAN. ON THREE PREVIOUS OCCASIONS, THE PEOPLES ELEPHANT HAD MET SUDAN’S BIGGEST CLUB AL HILAL IN THE CAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.
