Raja scored four times in away ties in the group stages and scored twice at CARA Brazzaville as they defeated the Congolese side 3-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals. Their 22-year-old striker Mahmoud Benhalib has scored 11 goals so far in the competition.



Raja met Enyimba in the 2011 CAF Champions League, with the Nigerians beating them 2-0 in Aba before securing a goalless draw in Casablanca.



Abdallah told our correspondent that the clash would be tough but said the seven-time Nigerian league champions would be up to the task on Wednesday.



“Raja are a top side in Africa and they have a rich continental history and experience. They play good and compact football but we are not scared of playing them,” he said.
