The Peoples' Elephant arrives in Morocco today where they will take on Hassania Agadir in their CAF Confederation Cup Group D opener on Sunday.
Every game at this stage of the competition, home and away, is difficult and this one will certainly be.
First of all, the Nigerian champion will be facing circa more than 40,000 rabid fans at the Stade Adrar where the Moroccans will be led by Mohamed Fakhir. who replaced their long-time Argentinean coach Miguel Angel Gamondi. The hosts will be hoping to at least equal making it the quarter-finals of the competition as they did last year.
The fact that they survived a very physical and quick Green Buffaloes team of Zambia shows they can play the game despite sitting at the 12th spot in the Moroccan LeagueRelated: Joshua To Return Home And Present IBF, WBO, WBA And IBO Belts To Buhari
In any case, the North Africans have remained unbeaten in their last three home games but Enyimba (above) is not intimidated and are in high spirits. They will have to especially watch the opponents, two Senegalese gunslingers, Bakary Mané (below) and Malick Cisse who just as their famous last names suggest, know a thing or two about good football.
We should expect a tough gritty game with the Moroccans doing everything to prevent that crucial away goal including shining lasers in the eyes of the visitors. Enyimba meanwhile will be looking to score as many away goals as possible and snuff the Gazelles out in Aba.
Our Prediction: Hassania Agadir 1 Enyimba 1
