The match is the first leg of the preliminary round clash but the People’s Elephant young forward, Tosin Omoyele is hoping to use his Enyimba debut to build confidence and set the right tone as he begins his career with the two time African Champions.

“Last year, Enyimba defeated Rahimo, so you know this season it’s not going to be easy but we are determined and we have been working hard”, says the former Plateau Utd forward.
“I believe it is one of the biggest games because it is my debut so I am sure when I am given the chance to play I will prove myself so that the team can get results and I can get more confidence because the other games are coming and I must be quick to adapt to the team.
“Friendly games and training are quite different from the league; and this is even a CAF Champions League game, so I have the determination that whenever I am called upon to play, I am ready to give my best.”
Sunday’s encounter at the Stade du 4 Aout, Ouagadougou will be superintended by Ghanaian referee, Abdul Latif Qadiri, with kickoff time set for 4 pm local time, which is 5 pm in Nigeria.
