Chiefs ‘are not as good as they think’

2014-02-14 15:09

South Africa’s representatives in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) continental competitions, Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United, are expected to advance to the next round of their respective tournaments tomorrow.

Chiefs take a healthy 3-0 lead to Black Africa of Namibia in the CAF Champions League while United take a short trip to Botswana’s Gaborone United in the Confederations Cup. United won the first leg 2-0 last weekend.

But Black Africa have already warned Amakhosi to expect a torrid afternoon.

Captain Dacosta Angula said Chiefs did not pose a threat to them and was confident of reversing the score line.

He said the goals they conceded last weekend were as a result of their mistakes and said Chiefs were not as good as they thought.

Chiefs’ ten-game winning streak came to an end on Tuesday when they were held to a two-all draw by Maritzburg United.

Coach Stuart Baxter, after resting some of his key players in last weekend’s first leg, is expected to unleash them as he does not want to take any chances.

The winner of this tie will face either Mozambique side Liga Muculmana or CNaPS Sport from Madagascar in the next round.

United are also bracing themselves for a tough afternoon at the National Stadium in Gaborone tomorrow afternoon.

Their 2-0 victory was not smooth sailing and they will have to put up a good fight if they are to advance to the next round.
