Busy Sunday: Rangers, Enyimba face Confederation Cup hurdle

Enyimba after touching down in South Africa for Galaxy clash


Rangers International and Enyimba will have their hands full this Sunday as they confront Togolese side Kara and South African side TS Galaxy in Confederation Cup clashes respectively.

While the Flying Antelopes who lost 2-1 away host the Togolese with mind set at turning the table at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enyimba who beat Galaxy 2-0 in the first leg decided at the Enyimba international stadium, will be hoping to avoid table turning encounter in South Africa.

The two time Champions league champions have already hit the Rainbow City for the Sunday showdown confirming that they indeed practiced at the venue ahead of the clash.  The peoples Elephant some say will not be having a tea party in South Africa Galaxy will be doubling effort aimed at giving their vociferous fans something to smile about.

Some pundits say the odds favour Rangers International who are assured of massive support of their fans at home, but did not rule out the possibility of Enyimba holding their own the expected role of Galaxy supporters as the 12th player notwithstanding.

Enyimba crashed out of the Champions league to join Rangers in the Confederation cup play-offs.

Both Enyimba and Rangers have had their Nigeria premier league ties originally fixed for Sunday postponed due to continental engagement.
