CAF CL: Moise Katumbi calls for a miracle as TP Mazembe host Raja

TP Mazembe president Moise Katumbi has rallied on his troops ahead of Friday's CAF Champions League quarterfinal return leg against Raja Casablanca in Lubumbashi.

TP Mazembe need at least three goals without conceding to overturn the 2-0 loss they suffered in Morocco last week. 

Katumbi believes that his team has what it takes to stop the marauding Moroccans and advance to the semis.

"We lost a battle, but not the war. We are sure about that. They beat us by two goals at home, but know that at here in Lubumbashi, there will be a miracle. We have a good team, ” he said.

He also alluded to the unity in the squad as a key factor heading into this crucial tie. 

“We have to be together. The advantage we have within Mazembe is that we fall together and get up together. We will get up. We know that Raja's team is not special. Above all, we won't look for a scapegoat. If there is a problem, we will sort that out after our victory, our qualification. So I invite you to come in large numbers to cheer our team,"  he added.

Mazembe will be boosted by the return of veteran striker Tresor Mputu who missed the first leg after being suspended by the club over disciplinary grounds.
