Akwa United’s Emmanuel Ariwachukwu
Searing battles will rage
on the field across the federation on Wednesday with the Agege
Stadium, Lagos, Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano and the U.J. Esuene Stadium
in Calabar among six venues that will witness confrontations in the
quarter final matches of the AITEO Cup 2018.
The much –anticipated
clash between Enyimba FC and Kano Pillars will have to wait till
Sunday as the People’s Elephant have a CAF Confederation Cup semi
final, first leg date with Morocco’s Raja Casablanca in Aba on
Wednesday. But holders Akwa United will test strength against five
–time champions Rangers International of Enugu at the Sani Abacha
Stadium in Kano.
Kwara United FC of Ilorin,
who overpowered the better –rated trio of Kano Pillars, Rivers
United and Abia Warriors to top the Lagos centre, will go all out
against Katsina United at the Agege Stadium.
On Thursday, Nasarawa
United of Lafia will take the stage at the Enyimba International
Stadium, Aba (venue of Wednesday’s CAF Cup attrition) against
El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri.
In the women’s
competition, which is also at the quarter final stage, champions
Rivers Angels will square up to Sunshine Queens of Akure at the Lafia
Township Stadium, at the same time that Bayelsa Queens will be up
against Osun Babes at the Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu-Ode.
Last year’s finalists
Ibom Angels have to tango with Delta Queens at the Nnamdi Azikiwe
Stadium, Enugu for a place in the semi finals, while Confluence
Queens of Lokoja must negotiate the booby traps laid on by Edo Queens
at the U. J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
