Emmanuel Amunike: Enyimba capable of beating Zamalek
The Cairo giants will kickoff their campaign with an away game against Enyimba in Port Harco Stadium. Both teams were seeded in Group B alongside Algeria’s ES Setif and Mamelodi Sundowns.
“Enyimba have to work hard, believe in themselves and the players have to be ready for the competition. They have to compete and not just be happy they qualified for the group stage.
“It won’t be easy, but they are beatable. Enyimba just have to minimise their errors against a big club like them so that they are not punished when they present a weakness,” said the former Nigerian prolific striker.
Enyimba, who qualified to the CAF Champions League by topping the Nigerian league last season, reached the group stage by edging out Etoile du Sahel 4-3 on penalties. They currently sit seventh in the Nigerian league standings on 31 points, 7 away of league leaders Wikki Tourists.
Amunike featured for the Egyptian Giants between 1991-1994, scoring 26 goals in 71 games for the club, before moving to Europe.
