Zanaco confident of beating APR

As they finalise their preparations for the CAF Champions League second leg tie against Rwanda Patriotic Army, Zanaco players are upbeat and confident of a win.

The return leg will be staged at Kigali as the Zambian Premier League outfit targets a spot in the first round.

However, APR coach Jimmy Mulisa has issued a warning that the Bankers must brace themselves for an intimidating crowd at the Amahoro Stadium.

Both sides finished at a goalless stalemate in the first leg at Lusaka’s Nkoloma Stadium last Saturday.

Zanaco striker Saith Sakala said they will overcome APR and denied the fact that they are under pressure.

“The nation must rally behind us. We will qualify to the next round. We are not under pressure because we have done our homework,” said Sakala.

“What happened in the first leg is part of football. We now know their weaknesses and strength. It is obvious we will go for an early goal in the first 15 minutes so that we can upset them.”

On the other hand, midfielder Boyd Musonda also added that the players know what is at stake and losing is not their mission.

The midfielder is also part of the Zambian U20 squad set to host the 2017 CAF Africa Youth Championship which kick-off on Sunday, February 26.

“If I will not score then I will work hard so that I can at least create a goal. We will come back home with a positive result that will take us to the next round,” adds Musonda.

“There is no need to worry. We are going through to the next round. We respect them (APR) because they are a big club, but we are confident we will pull through.”
