Zanaco set to complete the job in West Africa

Zanaco will face Gambian Air Force FC in Banjul on Saturday with kick off at 18h30 CAT in the second leg of CAF Champions League.

The Lusaka based go into tie as favourites thanks to a 3-0 aggregate from the first leg.

Coach Numba Mumamba is expected to set out his side in the traditional 4-4-2 formation.

But should Numba decide to go for continental formation then Zimbabwean playmaker Tafadzwa Rusike could play in the hole with either the veteran Isaac Chansa or Richard Kasonde joining Boyd Musonda at the base of the midfield.

With that 4-5-1 formation then it has to be between two goal hero Martin Phiri or Maisha Chavda to lead the attack.

On the flanks, both Charles Zulu and Ernest Mbewe are expected to start with Guilly Manziba set to come off the bench.

Captain Ziyo Tembo is expected to marshal the defence alongside George Chilufya while Taonga Bwembya will replace Jimmy Nakena who didn’t travel due to passport hitch.

Zanaco Probable: Toaster Nsabata – Taonga Bwembya, Ziyo Tembo, George Chilufya, Zimiselini Moyo – Ernest Mbewe, Boyd Musonda, Tafadzwa Rusike, Charles Zulu – Maisha Chavda, Martin Phiri
