Ripples Nigeria earlier reported that Rivers United were drawn in Group C alongside Ghana’s Dream FC, Club Africain of Tunisia, and APC Lobito of Angola.

Recall that last season, Rivers United, the then champions of the Nigeria Premier Football League, were eliminated from the CAF club competition in the quarterfinal round.

They existed after falling to a 2-0 aggregrate defeat to Young Africans of Tanzania.

The Pride of Rivers will again be looking to make history as the first Nigerian clubside to win the CAF Confederation Cup.
