Enyimba’s journey in the CAF Champions League: Is this the end???

As we approach the weekend, and yet another round of the Orange CAF champions league matches beckon, we shall be taking a look at my the the chances of our darling peoples Elephant ‘Enyimba of Aba’.


I think it is fair to say Enyimba’s chances are pretty poor, they sit bottom in a group of three teams with ES Setif disqualified due to crowd trouble. Having lost to both Zamalek at home and to Sundowns in SouthAfrica, the peoples Elephant have a very slim chance of progressing into the next round of the competition. 

The peoples Elephant are up against a very tough opponent in Zamalek this Sunday, they lost to the Egyptian outfit at home earlier in the competition, they will be needing nothing more than three Golden points in the bag when they visit Egypt. With six of their players currently in Spain with the NPFL all stars team who lost to Valencia last night, their chances of beating Zamalek can only get slimmer.  


Speaking to goal.com, Enyimba center half kester said “It’s very possible that we shall get a win against Zamalek in Egypt. In our first match in the group stage you could see that Zamalek were just lucky to secure a win,” Enyimba players won’t be far reaching by thinking they can get a win in Egypt, earlier in the competition Sundowns who have been very impressive so far this season and currently sit at the top of the group were able to snatch a valuable win away to the Egyptian outfit, So Enyimba can draw inspiration from that performance. 

Assuming Enyimba can get a favorable result in Egypt, they still need to face the impressive Mamalodi Sundowns at home in a match that can be a potential decider of Enyimba’s chances of progressing into the money spinning stage of the competition. 

Before looking far into the future let’s savor this weekend’ s cracker between Zamalek and Enyimba,
