Enyimba, Raja bank on home ground advantage in Confed Cup

Four semifinal spots are up for grabs with the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal second-leg matches set to take place on Sunday.

Moroccan champions Raja Casablanca will be banking on their home ground advantage when they host South African giants Orlando Pirates at the Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca.

The two teams drew 1-1 in the first-leg encounter which took place at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg with Ben Malango canceling out Vincent Pule’s opening goal last weekend.

Nigerian giants Enyimba FC, meanwhile, will be determined to overturn a 4-1 deficit when they host Egyptian club Pyramids FC at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba.

Ramadan Sobhi, Abdallah El-Said and Ibrahim Adel (brace) all scored for Pyramids in the first-leg match with Victor Mbaoma grabbing Enyimba’s away goal at the 30 June Stadium in Cairo.

Cameroonian giants Coton Sport FC will be targeting another victory over Senegalese side ASC Jaraaf at the Stade Lat-Dior in Thiès.

Lambert Araina netted the only goal of the match as Coton Sport secured a first-leg 1-0 victory at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium in Garoua.

Lastly, Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien will be seeking revenge when they take on Algerian side JS Kabylie at the Stade du 1er Novembre 1954 in Tizi Ouzou.
