CAF CC: Easy game for NAPSA Stars? Fathi doesn’t think so

Zambia’s envoys in the CAF Confederation cup, Napsa Stars this afternoon takes on Ngazi FC from the Comoros Islands in the second leg of their preliminary round encounter at the National Heroes Stadium.

It will be an easy or already done game for Napsa Stars on paper as they go into this match with a comfortable 5-1 lead from the first leg played away in Comoros.

Although everything is possible in football, it will be a very huge mountain to climb for Ngazi FC and overturn the 5-1 deficit from the first leg.

Napsa Stars coach Muhammad Fathi admitted that his team did a good job in Comoros in the first leg.

“I think we had a very good time in Comoros and we managed to do a half plus job, that was a good job I really appreciate the team,” Fathi told the ZamFoot Crew during a pre-match press conference.

Fathi however refused to consider Ngazi FC as a weak team because they have qualified for continental football three times.

“This team has qualified for continental football three times, do you see a team that has qualified three times in a roll as a weak team? There is no weak team in continental football,” The Pensioners gaffer said.

Napsa Stars Skipper Dickson Chapa has promised a win as he believes his team will pick up from where they left off in Comoros.

“I think we not under pressure, I think the pressure is with the opponents like the coach said, we did half of the job in Comoros so what we need to is pick up from where we left, I think we will fight as usual,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ngazi FC coach Annise Mihissoini promised a surprise in today’s match despite them coming into the match with a 5-1 deficit.

“We have to win here and that is our goal, we promise a surprise here,” he said.

In terms of lineups, we expecting almost the same lineup for Napsa Stars that started in Comoros, for Ngazi FC they will be forced to make few Changes just to try new tactics.

Unfortunately, a lot of soccer fans won’t be able to watch the match as CAF has only allowed 200 spectators. However, the game will be televised live on the National Broadcaster.
