Enyimba welcome Al Hilal to Aba for Caf Champions League opener

Nigeria’s Enyimba will begin their third attempt at winning the Caf Champions League with a visit from Al Hilal in Aba on Sunday.

The Enyimba International Stadium, where many teams have struggled to make a statement in the past, will host the game.

Hilal coach Milutin “Micho” Sredrojevic has said he knows the enormous task ahead of his team in Nigeria, even though they will go to try and poach a point from their road trip.

“We know we are playing against a team which will have a huge advantage of the home crowd – but we will use all possible means to expose weak points of their team and to try to get a good result,” Sredrojevic told BBC Sport.

Enyimba won the league in 2003 and 2004 and will hope that 2011 is a more successful year. The other teams in Group A are Raja Casablanca and Coton Sport.
