Lobi Stars manager, Solomon Ogbeide said his team would work hard to qualifier for the quarter finals of this season CAF Champions League inspite of their underdogs tag.

The Pride of Benue were drawn in Group A along with Ivory Coast’s ASEC Mimosas , Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca and South African side Mamelodi Sundowns which many believes Is the toughest group.




Ogbeide said the draw is good for his team if they actually belong to the CAF Champions League class.

He said , “ It is a good draw for us because if we have to be champions we have to meet champions . It only tells us that we have to prepare well for the matches because they are close and will be tough. We have not been expecting anything less because no team at this stage of the competition is a pushover .“



The veteran coach added that with adequate preparation the team will excel and it doesn’t matter many refers to them as underdogs.

“We like the underdog tag that we have in the group and I think it will work well for us – it comes with no pressure .I only believe that Nigerians should support Lobi because they are representing the whole country in the competition at this stage and not only the club.

 

“We have begun preparations for the first match as we have started camping in Ijebu Ode ahead of the visit of the South Africans . It is a closed camping and we will work hard on correcting the mistakes we have observed in our previous matches to ensure that we are in good shape for the next set of matches.”

Lobi Stars will travel to South Africa on January 11 2019 for the first Group game of the competition.

I think they've reached their last destination. I wasn't even expecting them to get to the group stages.
They can pull a surprise though.

The league was not concluded due to issues at the glass house and Nigeria needed someone to represent her at the continental stage and Lobi stars being top of the table was picked to do the binding for us
