Enyimba rescue Nigeria but the other clubs must pull their weight

As celebrations erupted in Aba following Enyimba's 5-1 rout of Rwanda's Rayon Sport in Sunday's CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final second leg, it was about more than just the victory, even though only very few may have realised it.

A greater, and more significant impact rested on the game's result, one with consequences for all Nigerian clubs.

By making it to the semi final, Enyimba are guaranteed three more points in CAF's ranking system. Multiplied by CAF's weighting factor of five, that gives...

Enyimba, Rayon Sports battle for CAF Confederation Cup final four spot

Nigeria's Enyimba will battle Rayon Sports of Rwanda at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba on Sunday for a semi-final spot in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The two teams played out a 0-0 draw in Kigali on Sunday, a result which, on paper, appears to favour the People's Elephant, who have won all but one of their five previous home games in the competition.

Enyimba wary of Rayon Sports in Confederation Cup quarterfinal



Nigeria's Enyimba will take on Rayon Sports of Rwanda in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal tie in Kigali on Sunday without defensive stalwart Mohammed Farouk.

Farouk will serve a one-match suspension after collecting two yellow cards, a blow to coach Usman Abdallah as he seeks to return to Aba with a handy advantage ahead of the second leg a week later.

Enyimba will be favourites for the tie, but Abdallah is wary of leaving themselves too much to do in the second...

Rayon Sports eyeing big goal haul vs. Enyimba

Rayon Sports president Paul Muvunyi is confident that his side can eliminate Enyimba in their CAF Confederation Cup quarter final, and is confident the Rwandan side can rack up a big goal haul against the Nigerians.

They've progressed to a double-header against Enyimba, with the two sides set to meet on Sunday at the Stade...
