rangers_of_enuguNigeria’s representative in the CAF Confederation Cup, Rangers International of Enugu will travel to Tunisia today ahead of their second leg cracker this weekend.

The team will depart Murtala Mohammed Airport this night as they aim to make an early arrival in Tunisia for the second leg of their Confederations Cup qualifier against CS Sfaxien at the Stade Taieb Mhiri.

Rangers go into the second leg of the game with a slim advantage having won the first-leg 1-0 courtesy of a late goal scored by Ugonna Uzochukwu, and will need at least a draw either score or goalless to progress to the next stage.

The Flying Antelopes have struggled for consistency in recent weeks and will be hoping that their 2-0 home win over Sunshine Stars at the weekend will motivate the players to get a positive result against Sfaxien who have won the Confederations Cup on two occasions.
