Enugu Rangers will know their fate in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday when they face group A leaders Pyramids at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo and Enyimba Midfielder Austin Oladapo said he feels “sad” for the NPFL side.
Rangers have played four games, but failed to win any and have just 2 points; they need to win their remaining matches to stand a chance of progressing.
However, it doesn’t seem likely as the task before them is a steep climb.
The first meeting between Salisu Yusuf’s men and Sunday’s opponents in Enugu ended 3-1, as the visitors sealed a stunning victory.
In a chat with brila.net Oladapo said, ” For Rangers I feel sad for them because they tried but it didn’t turn out as they planned.”
Oladapo and Enyimba also have their fates in their own hands when they face Hassania Agadir in Aba on Sunday.
The Elephants are second in the group with four points and behind the Moroccan side. A win could see them cut the points deficit to just one and further brighten their chances of progressing to the next round.
“Hopefully we can redeem Nigeria’s image and continue to fly the Country’s flag in the competition,” the midfielder said.
