After overcoming Djoliba 1-0 in Bamako on Sunday, Nigeria's flagbearer, Enyimba FC will be hoping to pick the maximum points in their last Group C encounter against CARRA Brazzaville in the CAF Confederation Cup on August 28.

The Peoples Elephant clinched the much-needed points thanks to Farouk Mohammed’s late goal after goalkeeper, Theophilus Afelokhai had made some brilliant saves to end the host hope to make it through to the knockout stages of the tournament.

With nine points in the bag, the Aba Millionaires can now smile back to their renowned home Stadium in their final group after the Confederation Of Africa Football (CAF) passed it fit to host the match.

A draw is still enough to book Eyimba's place in the last eight, however, the Southeast team knows that any form of complacency or profligacy in front of goal could also hamper their chances of qualifying; most especially if they lose all three points. (Soccernet)
