CAF CL: Enyimba coach plots Rahimo FC fall in return leg

Enyimba coach Usman Abdallah believes he now have a better knowledge of Rahimo FC and in a good position to snatch a home victory in the return leg of the CAF Champions League clash.

Enyimba lost 1-0 to hosts Rahimo FC of Burkina Faso in Ouagadougou in their First Preliminary Round first leg clash on Saturday.

Abdallah admits Rahimo has a youthful team, but victory over the Burkina Faso club is a must.

“But with the first-hand knowledge we acquired from Saturday’s tie, it will now be ‘easier’ to plot their downfall in the second-leg.

“They have a young team with very good mobility and good techniques and they are very fit.

“The goal they scored was a deflection and could have been avoidable, but now we have to go back to Aba and cancel the goal and also get another one more goal to seal the deal.

“This is definitely not beyond our reach, given our pedigree. So, I am confident that we will have no problem advancing,” the coach said.

The two-time African champions will host the Champions League return leg tie on August 23 at the Enyimba Stadium in Aba.
