CAF Champions League (Saturday)

KCCA v Nkana Red Devils (2-2)

GEORGE Nsimbe might have pulled off a priceless away result but the KCCA coach is not about to start chest thumping.

“It is still a 50-50 game. So, we have to work harder,” noted Nsimbe yesterday after returning from Zambia where KCCA held Nkana FC to a 2-2 draw.

The return leg is scheduled for Saturday at Namboole. Nkana are expected here tomorrow.

Two weeks ago, complacency almost cost KCCA the CAF Champions League first round place. KCCA shocked El Merreikh with a 2-0 defeat in Sudan only to relax in the return leg losing 2-1.

“It will be a different story this time,” explained Nsimbe.

To underline their seriousness, KCCA will not rest. They resumed training yesterday and start residential sessions today.

Comparing Nkana to El Merreikh, Nsimbe said the latter were a better side.

“They had better ball possession. Their attacks were also more dangerous, largely because they were generally a younger team.”

Nkana FC also strongly believe that they can turn tables.

“We are a very positive team, we have always risen when least expected. We have seen KCCA, they are a beatable side. We are still in the game. Those chances we had in the first half could have killed off the game,” said coach Masasuto Mwale. 

Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president, Kalusha Bwalya, has also tipped Nkana to qualify to the second round.

“It was a tough game and Nkana know what they have to do to get to the next round. Football is like that sometimes for it does not go according to how one wants it to be.

“We were expecting a certain result but they (KCCA) came back fi ghting to snatch a draw.”
