Former Nigeria international Ndubuisi Egbo has the chance to land another silverware for KF Tirana when they take on Teuta Durres, in the Albanian Super Cup on Monday, Completesports.com reports.
Egbo made history last season when he became the first African coach to lead a club to win a European league title following his feat with Tirana.
A win for Egbo and his Tirana side against Teuta Durres will see them stretch their record Albanian Super Cup title to 12.
Tirana will be desperate to become Super Cup champions again having last won the country’s season curtain-raiser in 2017.
While for Teuta Durres, they will be eyeing a first ever Super Cup title after finishing runners-up in 1994, 2000 and 2005.
KF Tirana will go into Monday’s encounter with revenge in their minds after they were beaten 2-0 by Teuta Durres in last season’s Cup final.
The Cup final defeat denied Egbo the opportunity to seal a league and Cup double for Tirana.
Meanwhile, Teuta Durres have the upper hand going into the clash as they have won their last two games against Tirana.
And in their last five meetings, Tirana have managed just one win, lost two and drawn two.
Also, Tirana will hope to bounce back from their Champions League elimination in the hands of Red Star Belgrade.
They lost 1-0 at home to the 1991 Champions League winners in the second round of the qualifiers.
