Can Nigeria’s Warri Wolves Turn the Table for Al Merreikh in Sudan?

One of Nigeria’s representatives in Confederation of African Football, CAF Champions League, Warri Wolves will be in action this weekend hoping to overturn the result when they take on Al Merreikh of Sudan in a return leg. Warri Wolves is one of Nigeria’s local clubs from Delta State, making its début at the league.

To get through to the second round of the competition, the Nigerian Premier League side will have to put up a stunning performance to cancel their 1-0 loss at home in the first leg which is very possible.

They had their destiny in their own hands about a week ago but blew the chance to go ahead after losing at home. It is also worthy to mention that the Wolves are participating in the competition for the first time, but this is not an excuse to fall by the way side at this stage.

For the records, the Sudanese have recorded four wins and a draw in their last five games in all competition. Also Al Merreikh have featured in the Champions League 19 times, reaching the semi-final last year.

What it takes: Score a goal in Sudan to put the result at per, and then go for the killer! This is football where impossibility is nothing like we saw in the game between Bayern Munich and Juventus in the UEFA Champions League. The Italian giants pulled a comeback before losing it in the extra time.
