Horoya AC’s Nigerian forward Bolaji Sakin has backed his side to eliminate Nigerian league champion Enyimba FC in the quarter-final of the CAF Confederation Cup.


Enyimba was drawn against the Guinean side in the last eight of the Confederation Cup, a fixture Sakin had predicted in previous interviews with footballlive.


The attacking Midfielder said his knowledge of their quarter-final opponent will be vital to help his side avoid a defeat to the NPFL club.


“Football is not mathematics, if you work hard then you’ll achieve well,” Sakin told footballlive .


“What I know about Enyimba is just little, I know they change a lot of their players, that I don’t really know.


“When I was in Nigeria some were not in Enyimba but I know most of them. I know what information I will give to my coach so we can work on that.


“He’s also an expert in champions league stuff so he knows what to do to get some information. What I know and what I believe is that we want the cup and we are going for it.”
