Enyimba captain, Ojo Olorunleke says the team is in Casablanca to beat their hosts Wydad Athletic Club.

The Nigerian champions lost the first leg of the quarter -final clash 1-0 in Uyo last weekend.

Finidi George’s side will take on the Red Castle in the reverse fixture at the Stade Mohamed V, Casablanca on Thursday night.

Enyimba must score two goals without conceding to earn a berth in the last four.

The People’s Elephant will be up against a hostile crowd at the magnificent stadium.

Olorunleke is, however, upbeat they can surmount the hurdle and earn a place in the semi-final stage of the competition.

“We came here to achieve victory. We are ready and confident, we have spoken together,” the goalkeeper told a pre-match press conference on Wednesday night.

“We faced some difficulties and challenges before coming here,but we are a professional team and we can’t complain.

“We are here to win and qualify. We want to defeat Wydad like they did in the first leg.”
