CAFCC: Enyimba aiming to do the “impossible” against Pyramids in Aba

CAFCC: Enyimba aiming to do the “impossible” against Pyramids in Aba

Enyimba will march onto the pitch this Sunday for their CAF Confederation quarter-final second leg cracker against Pyramids of Egypt.


The Elephants who are two-time CAF Champions League winners are currently trailing the last season’s losing finalists after suffering a 4-1 defeat in the first meeting.


The defeat is Enyimba’s second-biggest loss to an Egyptian side after a 6-1 trashing in the hands of Ismaily at the Ismailia Stadium (group stage CAFCL) back in 2013.


Enyimba however needs to beat Pyramids in the second leg by at least 3-0 victory on Sunday to be guaranteed a place in the last four of the second African elite competition.


Enyimba’s chances will be boosted with the return of talisman Anayo Iwuala who missed the first leg due to an accumulation of yellow cards.


Coach Fatai Osho could also welcome back defender Nabil Yarou who was not included in the party to Egypt due to travel passport issues.


Meanwhile remain unclear if first choice fullbacks Imo obot and Stanley Okorom have recovered from the respective injury that knock them out of the first leg.


The tie which is billed for Sunday, May 23 2021 will be the Elephant’s twelfth stage game in CAF club competitions.


Enyimba would register their greatest result ever in the competition if they were able to complete a comeback against the Egyptians.
