CAF CL Preview: Eagles host tricky Agosto in the quest to reach the group stage

Green Eagles will be hoping to get a positive result when they host Angolan giants Primeiro De Agosto in a CAF Champions League pre-group stage first leg encounter.

The Kawale Boys eliminated South Africa PSL giants Orlando Pirates to reach this stage while Agosto dumped Tanzanian side Kikosi Maalum cha Kuzuia Magendo Sports Club, or simply KMKM SC.

Agosto head coach Dragan Jovic expects a tough match when the two sides meet this afternoon but have remained confident since arriving in Zambia on Wednesday that his team can pick a positive result.

The host's gaffer Aggrey Chiyangi wants his side to finish off the tie at home as he expects a tough match away in Angola in the second leg.

Wingers Amity Shamende and Spencer Sautu will be key for the Kawale Boys if they are to record a positive result in this game. Sautu and Shamende need to be at their best to create chances for Kennedy Musonda and Tapson Kaseba.

The Choma based side will also need to avoid conceding a goal or goals as that will put them in a difficult position heading into the second leg.

The match is set for 15:00hrs at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
