CAFCC: Enyimba face CARA, seek to extend unbeaten run

Nigeria’s representatives at the CAF Confederations Cup, Enyimba FC will take on Congolese outfit, Athletique Renaissance Aiglons (CARA) in their group stage matchday-two encounter on Wednesday.

The two-time African champions will hope to continue their impressive run (with three wins and two draws so far) in the second-tier continental league – a competition they are playing in for the first time.

Enyimba, coming from a 2-0 win against Mali’s Djoliba in matchday one, will be facing their second group opponents at Stade Alphonse Massamba Debat, Brazzaville.

CARA on the other hand lost their first game 1-0, and will be be desperate to seek their first points against the Aba side.

But speaking with cafonline.com, Enyimba winger, Stanley Dimgba, says he is confident the Peoples Elephants will scale through the hurdle in Congo.

“We always play to win. We are confident we can win in Congo,” he said.

“Personally, I’ve told myself that I have to brace up and improve on my goal-scoring ability both in the CAF Confederation Cup and in the Nigerian League. I will continue to work hard and hopefully I can also get a goal against CARA in Congo.

“We know they would come at us but we shall be ready for them too. I believe we have a solid team that can withstand pressure anytime, any day.

“We survived against Bidvest in Johannesburg despite all the pressure they mounted. I don’t think CARA can give us as much pressure.

“Whatever the situation, we shall be ready because it’s a game of 11 against 11.”

Djoliba will host Williamsville in the other group game in Bamako.
