Kalampa host Sfaxien in Confederations Cup quarters
Zambian glamour side Nkana host Club Sporting Sfaxien of Tunisia on Sunday in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup quarter final, first leg match at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.
The match kicks off at 15h00 and is scheduled for live broadcast on SuperSport.
Nkana will be desperate to put up a better show after their humiliating 4-1 defeat in their last away Confederation Cup group C match against Al Hilal Omdurman in March.
Coach Beston Chambeshi’s boys have also struggled for form domestically picking just 9 points from the possible 21 points.
Last Saturday, Kalampa succumbed to a shocking 2-1 defeat against Lumwana Radiants at home in Wusakile.
Meanwhile, Sunday’s clash will be the third meeting between these two sides with the first one being in 1999 in the CAF Winners Cup were Nkana beat Sfaxien 1-0 in Wusakile before losing 4-0 in reverse fixture played in Tunisia.
The Tunisian side heads into this encounter after a 2-1 win over Stade Tunisien in the Tunisian Cup – round of 16 played on April 2.
Sfaxien currently lie second in their local league on 34 points from 17 games played while Kalampa is eighth on the FAZ Super Division Stream B table with nine points after playing seven matches.
The Zambian giants are unbeaten in 60 continental home matches since 1976.
The Twelve-Time Zambian League Champions have won 43 matches and drawn 17 matches at Nkana Stadium.
Kalampa have scored a total of 134 goals and conceded 35 goals.
Nkana is yet to lose a match to any Tunisian side at home in Kitwe.
Etoile Du Sahel was the last Tunisian outfit to visit Nkana and lost 4-3 in the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup.
Meanwhile, Nkana will be without influential attacking midfielder Harrison Chisala due to injury.
Chisala is out of action for weeks after sustaining an injury in Nkana’s 3-2 win over Circuit City FC in the local League.
