Nigerian giants Enyimba International are at home hosting Djoliba as they get their CAF Confederation Cup, Group C underway on Sunday.

The Nigerian Premier Football League side started their campaign against Benin's Energie FC in the first round and they were clinical by bagging a 5-2 win over a two-legged affair.

Up next was a play-off clash against South African champions Bidvest Wits, whom they drew 1-1 away in Johannesburg before securing a goalless stalemate at home.

They managed to pass through to the group stages via an aggregate score on the away goals rule as they reached the group stage.

Against the Malians, they will want to keep doing well in front of their demanding supporters and to take the Nigerian football back to the top.

A look at Djoliba, they faced Rwanda's APR in the first round and were victorious through the away goals rule after netting away in their 2-2 draw.

Their win set up a clash against another Nigerian side, MFM, whom they beat 1-0 in Lagos and secured a 0-0 draw at home, thus booking a spot in the group stages.

Heading to Nigeria for the second time in their campaign means they will want to stun their hosts at 18:00 (CAT) at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
