The People’s Elephant look to have surpassed many expectations reaching the semi-final but are now faced with an uphill task in their quest for a final berth after a 1-0 initial loss in Aba.
Abdelilah Hafidi’s second-half strike gave the Moroccans a first-leg lead at the Enyimba Stadium - and that has left the Nigerian giants on the brink of missing out of the final.
Having exited the Federation Cup two weeks ago, many will expect the Aba-based side to have fully recovered from the stress of congested fixtures and overcome their poor form.
Usman Abdullah’s men will need to replicate their outstanding display in a 1-0 win at Djoliba as they take on the north Africans.
To overturn the first leg deficit in Morocco, the visitors will certainly count on Sunday Adetunji and Wasiu Alalade to find their scoring boots as well as the goalkeeping heroics of Afelokhai.
On the other hand, Raja would desire to consolidate on their first-leg advantage at the Aba International Stadium, having stayed unbeaten run in their last eight games in all competitions.
With a game away from the final, the Morrocans would focus on avoiding any slip up against Enyimba in front of their packed Stade Mohammed V, Casablanca to guarantee their progress.
