Nigerian sides Enyimba and Enugu Rangers will be targeting wins in the 2019/20 CAF Confederation Cup group stage match-day two on Sunday.


The action will be headlined by an encounter between Enyimba and Ivorian side San Petro in a Group D match at the Enyimba International Stadium.


Enyimba, who have eight Nigerian Premier League title, started their group stage campaign with a disappointing away defeat to Moroccan side Hassania Agadir last weekend.


Agadir will be hoping to secure their second successive win when they take on Algerian side Paradou at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium.


Enyimba’s local rival rivals, Enugu Rangers will also be looking to secure their maiden win in Group A when they take on Egyptian outfit Al Masry at the Alexandria Stadium.


Meanwhile, the 2012 Confederation Cup runners-up Djoliba are set to welcome former South African side Bidvest Wits in a Group C game at the Stade du 26 Mars.


Wits marked their debut in the group stage with a goalless draw with Guinean giants AC Horoya at home and they will be searching for their first victory.


Horoya are scheduled to play host to Libyan giants Al Nasr at the Stade du 28 Septembre in the other Group C encounter.


While last year’s Confederation Cup runners-up, RS Berkane of Morocco will be away to Zambian outfit Zanaco in a Group B match at the Sunset Stadium.


Beninese outfit ESAE FC will be looking to bounce back from their recent defeat to Berkane when they welcome DR Congolese side DC Motema Pembe at the Stade René Pleven d’Akpakpa.


Lastly, Egyptian side Pyramids are set to welcome Mauritanian club FC Nouadhibou in a Group A match at the 30 June Stadium.
