Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt says the playing field will be somewhat levelled by their CAF Champions League venue change.

Amakhosi face Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca in a Group C clash in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, on Sunday.

They were scheduled to face the two-time winners of the competition in Casablanca, Morocco, but Covid-19 concerns necessitated a change in venue.

Speaking to the media, Hunt said: "We knew this game was going to take place either way, it was just a matter of where.

"The one country I have never been to is Burkina Faso. I've been to Morocco, Tunisia, I've played everywhere.

"This is going to be new for me. I have to look at the pitch, see the size and where it is. But it also puts them on the back foot as well.

"They are the strongest side in the group with all their experience. Hopefully, we can get a positive result there."

While Chiefs began their Champions League campaign with a 0-0 draw with Horoya, Wydad beat Petro de Luanda 1-0.
