TotalCAFCC: Enyimba, Rangers face difficult group stage foes

Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) representatives in the 2019/20 Total CAF Confederation Cup (TotalCAFCC) Enyimba and Rangers were drawn against difficult sides in the group stage draws conducted on Tuesday.

The two Nigerian sides were luckily kept apart in the group stage draws but will have to contend with difficult North African oppositions in their respective groups.

Just like last season, Rangers International were drawn in the same group with two teams from the same country. Egyptian sides Pyramids and Al Masry were paired with the Flying Antelopes in Group A with Mauritanian side Nouadhibou completing the group.

Enyimba who reached the semifinal of the competition in 2018 were drawn in Group D with Moroccan side Hassania Agadir, Algerian side AC Paradou and San Pedro of Coted’voire.

Rangers will open their campaign with an away tie in Nouakchott against FC Nouadhibou on the weekend of November 29.

Enyimba will be at home in their first group game to face Paradou at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba on the same weekend.
