*Tragedy SAhead of the game, the samples of the players was taken as part of CAF protocol and the duo of Bordeaux Samuel Kalu and Venezia of Italy defender Tyronne Ebuehi tested positive, hence ruled out of tomorrow’s game. Kalu was billed to play as the number 10 in the absence of Alex Iwobi while
Ebuehi was billed down as back up full back.
