CACC: Rivers United Can Overcome USM Algers  –Unuanel

Former Kwara United coach, Samson Unuanel says he’s optimistic Rivers United can overcome defending champions, Algeria’s USM Alger in the quarter-finals of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Recall that the Algerian side are not just CAF Confederation Cup champions, they also hold the CAF Super Cup after they defeated Al Ahly of Egypt, the winners of the Champions League.

Also, Rivers United came from a goal down against Ghana’s Dreams FC to navigate their way into the Confederation Cup quarterfinals after securing a late 2-1 win.

In a chat with Completesports.com, Unuanel stated that Rivers United must show great character and determination to defeat the reigning champions.

“I think Rivers United can stand toe to toe with USM Alger regardless of their current status as the reigning champions of the CAF Confederation Cup and CAF Super Cup.

“Yes, I know it will be tough game but then Rivers United have the players to get the job done. It’s a game of 11 players and I don’t feel worried because I trust our clubside.”

“I am very optimistic Rivers United will overcome Algiers club after two legs.”
