Zamalek are favourites but Enyimba can shock them – Kaita

Sani Kaita is optimistic that Enyimba can upset Zamalek in Sunday’s  CAF Champions League game in Port Harcourt.The People’s Elephants progressed to the lucrative group stage of Africa’s premier club competition having edged Etoile du Sahel in the third round, and will begin their campaign against the north Africans in their quest for a third title.

Against a firmly established Mohammed Helmy team, the former Super Eagles player who had a stint with the Aba giants knows Paul Aigbogun’s men have their work cut out against the five-ime champions, but is positive they can prevail.

“Enyimba know that anything short of victory against Zamalek will affect their aspirations of winning the Caf Champions League again,” Kaita told Goal.

“With the quality the People’s Elephants have, I see them securing a win against the Egyptians but they have to be very careful because [Zamalek’s] intention will be to get a draw in Nigeria to start their
campaign on a good note.
“It will certainly be a tough game but with the way Enyimba played  Etoile in the last round, they can get a very good result at home if they are determined.

“Many would pick the Egyptians as favorites but they must not forget that Enyimba have won the competition twice,” he concluded.
