Nigerian representatives in the CAF Champions League, Kano Pillars and Enyimba FC of Aba face tricky tests in their respective matches this weekend.
While Nigerian champions, Pillars will play away at AS Vita on Sunday with new coach Okey Emordi aiming for a result in Kinshasa, Enyimba will be at home in Aba against unknown Togolese champions, Anges de Notsè in the preliminary round of the lucrative league.
Former Rangers coach Emordi only took charge of Pillars training a week ago, but he said he is confident his new team will get a result in DR Congo.
“We are not new to continental football and that experience is what we are taking to Congo and hopefully we will come back with a good result,” said Emordi, who led Enyimba to win the 2004 Champions League.
Meanwhile, Officials of Enyimba have admitted that they know nothing about their opponents going into Sunday’s first leg at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba.
Technical Adviser of Enyimba, Zachary Baraje revealed that he managed to get some tapes of matches played by Anges de Notsè but said that may be of little help to his side on Sunday.
“I have managed to get some tapes of competitive matches played by our opponents but these are not recent games. I have also been informed that they now have a new coach so their tactical approach to games may be different this time,” Baraje told supersport.com.
