Paul Aigbogun’s men have not lost in Africa in 2017-18, scoring eight goals in five games and conceding just thrice, and their form thus far suggests that they will secure safe passage to the knockout stages.
The Nigerians beat Djoliba in their last game and will hope for a similarly resounding result against the Congolese who have been blowing hot and cold this season.
CARA, meanwhile, are third in Group C with no point after bowing to Williamsville 1-0 by Roland Zan Bi. The Congolese come into this game on the back their 2-0 to Otôho d’Oyo in Congo’s topflight – and they must tighten up their backline which have conceded six goals in the competition.
