CAF CONFEDERATION CUP
Zesco United Vs Kaizer Chiefs
Levy Mwanawasa Stadium
George Lwandamina has a very good record with Zesco United in CAF competition and he will always be remembered for reaching Zesco United into the 2016 Caf Champions League Semi Finals.
Zesco United have always reached the group stage of Caf Competition from 2016 to date.
In Jesse Were and Lazarous Kambole he has probably the best attacking pair going forward , a duo who are complementary and have played together consistently for the past two seasons.
The question, as ever is how hardened are Zega for the fight when they are still in off season while Kaiser Chiefs is playing competitive football week in week out.
Thats the biggest worry that George Lwandamina has.
Add to the 1-1 draw at home to TP Mazembe (admittedly a TP Mazembe side who were favourites to qualify) at the end of the two ties suggested Zega’s capacity to play a more balanced game than we have seen in those last two games.
That said, their approach against Kaizer Chiefs should probably be tilted to attack. In the last 5 games under Chiefs have conceded five goals.
There is vulnerability in Chiefs however they can prove a tough nut if Khama Billiat who has scored four goals in the league and three in the CAF confederation cup this season is back in form, and if Leornado Castrol is given space to create the play.
But Zesco United is at home and have the players to win them this encounter with better tactics and approach to the game .
Now, with Ernst Middendorp’s side looking to gain an advantage in Ndola this weekend midfielder Hendrick Ekstien believes that the Amakhosi are in the right frame of mind to progress in the competition.
The same thought George Lwandamina holds gives the match a recipe of a good game being awaited at Levy Mwanawsa Stadium today.
