Enugu Rangers midfielder Aguda Godwin trusts that his side can beat Zamalek in the CAF Champions League, saying that it’s conceivable to keep away from defeat in Egypt.
The Nigerian side will go to Egypt to confront the 2016 Champions League runners-up on March 12 before hosting the Whites a week later
The flying Antelopes advanced to the round of 32 by the away goals rule subsequent to their 1-1 draw against Algeria’s JS Saoura far from home, then attracting 0-0 at home.
“I do not believe Zamalek is too strong for us. We will go to Egypt looking to at least get a draw as that will give us something to build on ahead of the return leg in Enugu,” Godwin told Supersport.
“We believe in ourselves and know it is possible to avoid defeat in Egypt,” he added.
The Nigerian Champions are currently 16th in the league with 12 points from 10 matches and will hope to find their form against Zamalek next week.
It’s worth mentioning that this is Enugu Rangers’ tenth Champions League appearances as their last one came in 2013, and they never won the trophy before despite reaching the final in 1975, when they lost the title to Guinea’s Haifa FC.
