Secretary of Enyimba International Football Club of Aba, Chibuzo Nwaogu, is confident that his side will overturn the 1-0 away victory by Rahimo FC of Burkina Faso when the two sides meet in a return leg at Aba on Sunday.

The two-time African champions will play in an empty stadium against their opponent in the crucial CAF Champions League fixture. This is because of CAF punishment as a result recent invasion of the pitch by Enyimba fans.

Nwaogu said that though the team would miss the fanfare and electrifying atmosphere that characterise the stadium each time the People’s Elephant play, the situation would not deter them from reversing the score in Aba.

He said that one thing Enyimba would seek to avoid in subsequent matches is to lose away from home as such losses could be disastrous if the team fails to upturn them at home and this could cut short their hopes of progressing in the competition.
