Sani Kaita is optimistic that Enyimba can upset Zamalek inÂ Sundayâ€™s Â CAF Champions League game in Port Harcourt.The Peopleâ€™s Elephants progressed to the lucrative group stage ofÂ Africaâ€™s premier club competition having edged Etoile du Sahel in theÂ third round, and will begin their campaign against the north AfricansÂ in their quest for a third title.
Against a firmly established Mohammed Helmy team, the former SuperÂ Eagles player who had a stint with the Aba giants knows PaulÂ Aigbogunâ€™s men have their work cut out against the five-imeÂ champions, but is positive they can prevail.
â€œEnyimba know that anything short of victory against Zamalek willÂ affect their aspirations of winning the Caf Champions League again,â€Â Kaita told Goal.
â€œWith the quality the Peopleâ€™s Elephants have, I see them securing aÂ win against the Egyptians but they have to be very careful becauseÂ [Zamalek’s] intention will be to get a draw in Nigeria to start their
campaign on a good note.
â€œIt will certainly be a tough game but with the way Enyimba played Â Etoile in the last round, they can get a very good result at home ifÂ they are determined.
â€œMany would pick the Egyptians as favorites but they must not forgetÂ that Enyimba have won the competition twice,â€ he concluded.
