All eyes will be on the match officials for today’s CAF Confederation Cup semifinal first leg match between Enyimba and Morocco’s Raja Casablanca in Aba.
Enyimba need a convincing victory on their home soil to ease the pressure on them in the return leg.
However, the attention will focus on the performance of the match officials, who allegedly came to Nigeria on the same flight with the Moroccan team for this game against Enyimba.
In their petition to CAF over the development on Monday, Enyimba complained, “the fact that the match officials traveled in the same flight with our opponents, Raja Club Athletic all the way to Port Harcourt, aborting the original Lagos route is deeply worrisome.”
Despite their concerns on the neutrality of the officials, Enyimba coach, Usman Abdallah is sure his wards will come out with a good result today despite Raja’s stronger pedigree in African football.
