Rivers United (Nigeria)
The Pride of Rivers kicked off their CAF Confederation Cup campaign with a humbling against Congo team Diables Noirs. Of course, Rivers United were not expected to win, but not to the extent of conceding three goals. Rivers United were the best team and were unlucky after creating four big chances and not finding the back of the net.
The pride of Rivers will be out to make history and become the first Nigerian side to lift the confederation cup. Stanley Eguma’s side also have an experienced squad full of quality players who can hold their own against any opposition.
Rivers United's home form is excellent, and we are confident they will rewrite their mistakes and secure their first three points.
ASEC Mimosas (Ivory Coast)
One of the best sides in Ivorian club football teams failed to impress at home as they kicked off their CAF campaign with a toothless draw. The visitors, who have drawn five, lost once and managed just two victories in their league, held to their belief as points were shared.
The Yellow and Black have dominated the Ivorian league for a long time, and this season hasn't been an exemption. Despite their success in the division, ASEC Mimosas are yet to make their mark in the CAF competitions.
ASEC Mimosas have been unbeaten since the season commenced as they sit at the top of the Ivorian league standings.
