EASTER WEEKEND FOOTBALL PREVIEW AND FIXTURES

Sports EASTER WEEKEND FOOTBALL PREVIEW AND FIXTURES

CAF CONFEDERATIONS CUP PREVIEW.

Green Buffaloes make their first visit to Egypt in over 25 years when they face Ismaili on Friday night in a Caf Confederations Cup round of 16 first leg fixture in Cairo.

Buffaloes are Zambia’s sole flag bearers in Africa this season after Caf Africa Champions League representatives Zanaco were knocked out in the 2nd round by Tunisian giants Esperance last month.

It has never been easy for Zambia clubs to play away in Egypt where a local side has yet to win in ten visits there.

All ten visits in all African club competition have ended in defeats away against Egyptian opposition with Nkana, Power Dynamos, Mufulira Wanderers, Nchanga Rangers, and Kabwe Warriors all cut down in Cairo.

A draw or win for Buffaloes will not only be a historic but psychological boost for them as they attempt to stay in the hunt and advance to the pre-group stage of the competition.

Buffaloes last visit to Cairo in 1982 saw them lose 3-1 to Al Ahly before beating the latter 1-0 in the reurn leg played in Lusaka to bow out 3-2 on aggregate in the quarterfinals of the old Caf Africa Champions Cup against the eventual winners that year.

Meanwhile, George Lwandamina takes a modest attacking side to Cairo this time that will need some inspiration from midfielders Sebastian Mwansa and Noel Mwandila to try and conjure a positive result against Ismaili.

Buffaloes advanced to the last 16 thanks to a 2-0 aggregate win over St Pauloise of Reunion after a 0-0 away draw in the 1st leg while Isamili crushed Ajessia of Madagascar 6-1 in Cairo in the final leg after a 2-2 result in the 1st leg away.

  1. Zanaco FC you have been the best in the last 5 years in Zambia but one thing I don’t understand is you always find a problem passing the 2nd round of the CAF champions leauge, what is your problem? Why can’t you bring back Dan Kabwe to coach you? To me I think he was a good coach after the late George Munguwa. Let Dan Kabwe work with Simukonda and you will see the results

  2. Zanaco has got one of the best Zambian coach in the name of F.Simukonda.Firing him will just lead Zanaco to hell.This club will dominate the local league,but shall continue failing at continental level because our soccer standards at club level are still too low as compared to North African countries.If local teams are to do better in future,then let them first invest much money into youth football.After 10 yrs or also positive results will be noticed.Dan Kabwe or anybody else will never ensure zanaco’s success at continental level.If you don’t believe my words,then wait and see how GBFC will perform in Egypt tonight.But I wish GBFC all the best.More support should be rendered to Sharp Konkola Blades.KCM please pump more cash into Blades.This team plays like Londons’Arsenal FC.VIVA Blades and hummer Power&Nchanga this weekend.Wish Mr.D.Mwiinde success!!!

  3. I am very happy with the progress of Sharp konkola Blades under D. Mwinde. He is a good coach who has a great relationship with players. which is a very important thing for a coach. I remember he coached me at Telesport F.C.

    I wish him succes at Sharp and all the best.Viva Blades.
