Champions League: Togolese club plans Enyimba upset
Anges de Notsè trainer, Jean-Francois Losciuto, is still angry at his side’s 1-3 loss to six-time Nigerian champions, Enyimba International FC, in last Sunday’s CAF Champions League tie played in Aba.
The Togolese champions looked on course for an unlikely victory at the Enyimba International Stadium until late goals from Sibi Gwar and Kingsley Sokari rendered Vincent Orode’s first half strike academic.
Losciuto who insists Orode’s effort in Aba could prove decisive in the eventual outcome of the tie however continues to rue “mistakes” made by his unheralded charges in the first leg.
“We defended with our hearts (in Aba). It was very difficult for us against an Enyimba side that was very organised.
“I was very disappointed with what happened in the final five minutes of (the first leg). We made some mistakes,” Locciuto told supersport.com.
The Belgian trainer believes the second leg at the 1,000 capacity Stade Anges de Notsè in Togo on Sunday will be a completely different affair compared to the first leg and believes his side will triumph against the two-time African champions.
“We are going to put things together for the second leg. Thank God we were able to score n away goal in the first leg. It was very important.
“We will see how things go in the second leg. The second leg will be a very different game,” he said.
