AFL: Why Wydad Will Be Under Pressure In Second Leg Against Enyimba  —Udeze

Former Super Eagles star Ifeanyi Udeze has said Wydad Casablanca will be under pressure going into Wednesday’s second leg quarter-final of the African Football League (AFL) against Enyimba.

In the first leg played inside the Godswill Akpabio International stadium in Uyo on Sunday, Wydad recorded a 1-0 win.

But Udeze believes going into reverse fixture in Morocco, Wydad still have it all to do despite egging the first leg.

“The pressure will be on Wydad Casablanca because Enyimba have nothing to lose after losing the first leg,” Udeze said on Brila FM.

“Enyimba will come out to play open football and for Wydad they must attack and also defend.”

    In Nigeria people like lying to themselves. Nigerian clubs are in Chaotic moment like never seen and you’re there saying a team that beat you in your home front several times will be under pressure playing you away from your home. These are the kind of unrealistic people that we celebrate. Abia!!!

    After watching the first leg, I HAVE almost lost every hope of Enyimba beating Wydad except some drastic changes are made in the way Enyimba play. And it’s even more painful when the Wydad team is also a weak team going by the way they play.
    Enyimba playing expansive football with players whose first touches are purely at academy level gives little or no hope, as the opposing team is always going to take advantage of winning all second balls to put Enyimba under pressure and beat them at last.
    I suggest Enyimba return to that Kadiri Khana compact style of play that won the African champions league Cup twice. A style of play that reduces the distance between players to accommodate lose ball and winning it back quickly. A style where the team play instead of individual player; the team moving as unit from one position to another.
    I understand this might be difficult to implement now but should be the way going forward in building a formidable Enyimba team. Anyway I wish the PEOPLE’S ELEPHANT SUCCESS. NZOGU NZOGU.. ENYIMBA ENYIM NZOGU ENYIMBA… A AAAAAAAWWUUUUURAAAA
