Nigerian quartet in continental mood
by George Akpayen 15 March 2013, 17:17


Four Nigerian clubs will begin their quest for a place in the next round of the Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup this weekend.

Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars will play hosts to last year's winners of the Confederation Cup, AC Leopards at the Sani Abacha Stadium from 3pm local time this Saturday.

The trio of Mannir Ubale, Papa Idris and striker Gambo Mohammed joined up with the Kano club from the camp of the Nigerian national team but will continue to be without midfielder Gabriel Reuben.

Enugu Rangers will make the trip to Burundi for the first leg of the first round in the Caf Champions League against Vital'O on Sunday.

Former African Coach of the Year, Okey Emordi, has named a squad without Super Eagles' trio, Chigozie Agbim (not cleared), Chibuzor Okonkwo (not registered) and Sunday Mba, who is a player in dispute.

But Emordi is confident of leaving the Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium in Bujumbura with a result against the Burundian champions.

"I have a squad capable of winning games. We have worked with players we have for this game rather than bother ourselves with those who are currently unavailable," said Emordi, who the Caf Champions League with Enyimba in 2004.

In the first round of the Caf Confederation Cup, Heartland and Lobi Stars will play their opening legs at home this weekend against US Bitam and Liga Muculmana de Maputo (LDMM) respectively.

Heartland and Lobi Stars were drawn bye in the preliminary round.

At the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri this Sunday, Heartland face Gabon's US Bitam, who humiliated Desportivo de Guadalupe from Sao Tome and Principe 17-1 on aggregate in the preliminary round.

Franck Corbin Guedegbe scored four goals for US Bitam at the Stade Augustin Monedan de Sibang in Libreville when they won 12-1 against Desportivo de Guadalupe in the second leg on March 2.

Lobi Stars will make their fourth appearance in Caf competitions after three previous attempts in 2000 (in the Champions League) and in 2004 and 2006 (in the Confederation Cup).

Ezekiel Bassey and Tony Okpotu will join up with Lobi Stars on Friday from the Super Eagles' camp in Abuja for the game against the Mozambicans in Bauchi on Sunday.

“The match is slated for Sunday in Bauchi and we expect Bassey and Okpotu to join us from the Eagles camp. After the match, both players will return to the Super Eagles camp. We did our best to return to Africa and we're preparing well for Sunday's match,” Lobi Stars' technical adviser, Dominic Iorfa, told supersport.com this week.

The second leg for the matches in the Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup will hold in a fortnight.

Rangers to earn points in Burundi
by Humphrey Njoku 15 March 2013, 06:36


Enugu Rangers’ right-back, Ugonna Uzochukwu has assured Nigerians that his side will not return from the battle of Bujumbura, Burundi empty-handed.

The Coal City side arrived Lagos aboard Arik Air on Thursday afternoon for the trip to the landlocked Central African state for the first round, first leg fixture of the Caf Champions League against the Burundian campaigners, Vital’O.

The encounter on Sunday will hold at the 22,000-seat Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium in Bujumbura, Burundi.

Uzochukwu said even though they are in the dark over the strength of their opponents they are positive of grabbing vital points at their backyard.

“One thing I want to assure Nigerians is that we won’t come back home from Bujumbura empty-handed.

“It could be an outright win or draw but the assurance is we must come back home with something no matter what the difficulties are over there in Bujumbura, Burundi.

“We don’t know anything about our opponents, Vital’O but we’ve steeled and psyched ourselves to face them squarely. We’ll grab a result that we will make the second fixture a bit easier,” said the Super Eagles’ defender to supersport.com.

Uzochukwu, who did not click to full potential against oriental foes, Enyimba in the opening match of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in Enugu last Saturday, promised to up his game against the Burundian side.

“Expect the best from me against Vital’O. Usually first league game is difficult and against familiar foes like Enyimba you don’t expect it cheap. But it will be a different Uzochukwu against the Burundian side,” he assured.

The second fixture is expected to hold at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu in a fortnight. Rangers walked over their preliminary round opponents, Sporting do Principe of Sao Tome & Principe in Enugu.

Nice thread! Quick question though...why is it that the league has to be on hold because 4 teams are involved in continental competitions? Why can't other teams just go on with their games and the continental participants play their outstanding games during the week, or even have the match arranged some other time. The league started very late and i don't think there's enough time to waste waiting for a few teams before the rest go on with their games.

I think it's only the teams that are supposed to play against the continental teams that will have to wait. I think other teams will go ahead and play their games or so i think.

This is why the league needs to put their house in order, if there was a sponsor, stuffs like this wouldn't happen.

Is it because of the continental engagements or it's just coincidental?

Yay! Finally a corporate sponsor has come to the rescue! I'm also happy about the plan to broadcast Nigerian league matches on terrestrial tv; this will in no small way enhance the popularity of the league.

I'll propose that the primary rights be given to NTA, AIT and Channels TV, which will in turn sell the secondary terrestrial rights to the other tv stations.
