CAF Champions League: Enyimba In Dire Need Of Miracle As Sundowns Shock Zamalek 2-1

Nigeria's flag bearer, Enyimba FC will need mother-luck to sneak out of group B of the CAF Champions League as South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns defeated Egypt's Zamalek 2-1 at the Petro Sport Stadium in Cairo on Sunday evening, to move top of the log with six points.

Goals from Tiyani Mabunda and Khama Billiat coming either side of a Mohamed Ibrahim strike. The defeat marked the first loss for Zamalek after 16 games, which included a 12-match undefeated streak under current manager Mohamed Helmi.

The People's Elephant now have a mountain to climb as they would need to win their remaining two games in Port Harcourt against Sundowns and in Cairo against Zamalek if the team must have any slim hope of qualifying to the knockout stages of the competitions.

Enyimba are currently sitting bottom of group B with zero point from two matches and will be praying for Sundowns to also pick all maximum points in the reverse fixtures on July 27 against Zamalek at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, knowing a draw would seal the Brazilians' place in the knockout stages of Africa's premier cup competition.
