Enugu Rangers eye second-leg comeback against Zamalek
Enugu Rangers manager Imama Amapakabo believes that his side can overturn their 4-1 first-leg defeat to Zamalek, when they host the Whites next Sunday.
Amapakabo hopes that ‘gods of football’ will help his side do the unexpected as they need to win by a margin of three or more to eliminate Zamalek from the round of 32 of the Champions League.
“Despite the fact that we lost 4-1 in the first leg it does not mean we cannot change the tune of the music here in Nigeria,” the Nigerian manager told CAFOnline.
“The first leg has come and gone and we have moved on. The important thing is that I have my team intact and I believe we will perform wonders this weekend.
Amapakabo continued showing he has faith in a comeback by saying: “We know it won’t be an easy match but we are banking on the fact that we want to maintain the jinx we have broken in the league after 32 years.
“We intend to do the same in the continental club championship because it has been a decade since Rangers the country in the CAF Champions league.
“The truth is that we will put in our best to make we score goals and win the day and qualify to the group stage, but only if the players will step up their game and make use of their chances once the need arises,” he concluded.
The Nigerian side will host Zamalek in the return-leg on Sunday, March 19 in Enugu, Nigeria at 17:00 CLT.
