Senegalese side Diambers FC will be Enyimba’s opponents in the second preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup.

This follows Diambers’ elimination of Guinean side Wakriya AC in the first preliminary round as three second-half goals ensured a 3-0 win for the Senegalese club at the Stade Lat Dior in Thiès, Senegal, on Sunday.

Owing to political tension in Guinea, the Confederation of African Football released a statement last week announcing that matches involving Guinea’s three representatives in the first preliminary round of the Interclub Competitions would be decided over a single leg in their opponents country. CAF’s decision, therefore, means that Sunday’s win was enough for Diambers to advance to the next stage.

Diambers, co-founded by football great Patrick Vieira in 2003, are making their debut in the Confederation Cup, but their participation in the Champions League in 2014 implies a previous experience in the CAF Interclub Competitions.

Enyimba will be on the road for the first leg of the second preliminary round tie between 15-17 October before hosting the return fixture a week later.
