CARA Brazzaville vs Enyimba: Hosts target People’s Elephant scalp

Comments()
After a stuttering start against Williamsville AC, Roger Elli Ociate’s men are in dire need of the Nigerians who are unbeaten in the competition

Enyimba must avoid defeat at Stade Alphonse Massemba-Débat, Brazzaville to brighten their chances of a place in the Caf Confederation Cup quarter-final.

This is the first time both teams will be meeting in the history of the competition, and result from this encounter will determine a lot in the race for the trophy.

Paul Aigbogun’s men have not lost in Africa in 2017-18, scoring eight goals in five games and conceding just thrice, and their form thus far suggests that they will secure safe passage to the knockout stages.

The Nigerians beat Djoliba in their last game and will hope for a similarly resounding result against the Congolese who have been blowing hot and cold this season.

CARA, meanwhile, are third in Group C with no point after bowing to Williamsville 1-0 by Roland Zan Bi. The Congolese come into this game on the back their 2-0 to Otôho d'Oyo in Congo’s topflight – and they must tighten up their backline which have conceded six goals in the competition.
