Enyimba Land In Monastir For Etoile Clash, Lodge At Hotel Habib

By Johnny Edward:


Nigeria's CAF Champions League campaigners Enyimba of Aba arrived in Monastir, Tunisia on Monday and are currently holding their first training session at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet Stadium, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.


The Nigerian champions face Etoile du Sahel in Sousse on Wednesday for a place in the CAF Champions League group phase.


The Aba Elephants who hold a 3-0 first leg lead are currently lodged at Hotel Habib in Monastir and will hit Tunisian city of Sousse on Tuesday ahead of their second leg clash against Etoile du Sahel at the Olympic Stadium.


Enymiba sources told Completesportsnigeria.com that the two-time CAF Champions League winners chose to stay in Monastir to avoid the distraction from the intimidating Etoile fans.


"We have a big game and are here to represent Nigeria so to beat every odd we need to stay focused," a team source told Completesporsnigeria.com.


The seven time winners of the Nigerian Premier Football League last qualified for the group stages of the competition in 2011.


The game will now hold at 7pm.
