For Kano Pillars, they begin another attempt at an appreciable impact on the continent after the colossal failure of last season. They face Senegalese league second placed side ASC Diaraf on Saturday at 6:00pm.
The Kano State government sponsored side travelled aboard an Ethiopian Airways Chartered flight to Dakar on Friday morning and will be relying on the likes of Rabiu Ali, Nyima Nwagua, Aniekeme Okon Asuquo to get the job done for them.
The game will take place at the Stade Demba Diop in Senegal with the return leg billed for the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna next Saturday.
Pillars will hope to scale the first hurdle this time around having lost to Ghana’s Asante Kotoko in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League last season.
