Despite losing 4-2 to Etoile du Sahel on Tuesday in the CAF Champions League playoff game, Plateau United midfielder, Tosin Omoyele says the team still have a possible chance of knocking out the Tunisian club in the second leg.
Omoyele scored Plateau United second goal after Etoile du Sahel had scored four goals, to put a serious question mark on their chances of making it to the next round.
However, Omoyele told Soccernet.com.ng that they could still qualify regardless of the scoreline in the first leg.
“I don’t think it will be too nice to start assuming that we can’t overturn the two-goal deficit Etoile du Sahel are having against us because in football anything can happen.
“Besides, since the second leg will be played at our Stadium, who says we can’t beat Etoile du Sahel and qualify for the group stages of the Africa Champions League.
“I am not giving up hope considering the fact that if we could score two goals at their home ground, nothing also stops us from overturning the deficit.
