Rivers United Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma, has stated in clear terms that Tuesday's CAF Confederations Cup match against Ugandan league champions KCCA is a 'do or die' for The Pride of Rivers, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Eguma's side are rocked bottom in the group with three points from three games, but a win for the Pride of Rivers against KCCA will put their campaign back on track while a defeat or a draw may end their dreams of a berth in the next round.
Rivers United lost 2-1 in the reverse fixture at the Phillip Omondi Stadium in Kampala on June 3.
"It's a big game in the continent, and we know the task ahead. It's like a do or die affair for us," Eguma began in a chat with Completesportsnigeria.com.
"We know the strength of our opponent on Tuesday, and we need to be at our best to get the maximum points and be in contention to qualification for the next round.
"Our plans is to win and I think we are on course."
