Big task ahead as Enyimba hope to overturn a 3-0 deficit they suffered against Al Merreikh of Sudan in the first leg of the CAF Champions League encounter.

The Peoples Elephant must defeat the 21-time Sudan Premier League winners by four goals without conceding to secure a place in the lucrative group phase of the tournament.

However, it is the second time Enyimba have faced such a deficit in the CAF Champions competition, and are hoping for a more successful outcome.

Β The Nigeria Professional Football League holders suffered a 4-1 loss away to ASEC Mimosas of the Ivory Coast in a 2002 qualifier and a 3-1 home victory was insufficient to avoid elimination.

Failure to overturn the scoreline means the two times winners Enyimba will drop to the CAF Confederation Cup and miss out on $550,000 (253 million Naira).

The draw for both the Champions League and Confederation Cup will be staged on Friday.
