Enyimba coach Fatai Osho and captain Austin Oladapo have predicted a tough tie against South African giants Orlando Pirates when both sides clash in a second Group A fixture at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.

The Buccaneers will be hoping to secure their first win of the group stage after playing a goalless draw against Algerian side ES Sétif last Wednesday at the 8 May 1945 Stadium.

The People’s Elephant are top of the group, thanks to a 2-1 win over Libyan side, Al-Ahly Benghazi, at the Enyimba Stadium in Aba last Wednesday.

Speaking to Enyimba’s media team ahead of the game, Osho says he is wary of the South Africans.

“Orlando Pirates play good football and move the ball quickly too, they can play their way out in difficult situations, their speed of play is in abundance as well; it is going to be a tough task but we are very prepared for this.”

Oladapo, who scored the opening goal against Al-Alhy Benghazi, says although the South Africans are a tough side, he is hopeful they can get the maximum points.

“The game against Ahly Benghazi was a morale booster, the game has built our confidence and we will love to continue our winning run. The game is a big battle because whoever wins goes top of the group, Pirates are a good side but we are here (South Africa) for a win,” Oladapo told the club’s website.

Enyimba have won just one of their last five games in South Africa, recording two losses and two draws. Their last visit was a 2-1 win over TS Galaxy in 2019.
