Lobi Stars football club of Markurdi will continue thier quest for a continental honour in their second group game against Asec Mimosas of Ivory coast in Abidjan on saturday evening.
Lobi stars whom are the underdog of group A with teams like Wydad Casablanca, Mamelodi Sundowns and Asec Mimosas started thier group stage campaign with a stunning 2-1 win over Mamelodi Sundown at the Nnamdi Azikiwe stadium in Enugu.
Lobi Stars which are currently in abidjan for thier second group stage games against Asec Mimosas are very poor playing away from home, Losing the away games in the preliminary rounds against USM De Loum of Cameroon and Gor Mahia of Kenya Before overturning the results at home to qualified for the group stage.
As the underdog of the group they have works to do to remove the underdog tag by winning all home games and picking points away from home.
Thier first big test is today against Asec Mimosas as their two main strikers Sikiru Alimi and Samad Kadiri whom did not feature in thier 2-1 win against Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa might also be doubtful for this mouthwatering encounter.
Lobi stars will have to get a point in Abidjan for them to have a glimpse of hope in being in the quarterfinals after impressive 2-1 win in thier first game.
