Zesco United is on Tuesday afternoon travelling to Bamako in Mali for Sunday’s return leg of the CAF Champions League first round against AS Kaloum of Guinea.
Kaloum play their home games in Mali owing to the Ebola outbreak in Guinea.
The Zesco delegation led by FAZ treasurer Kelvin Mutafu leaves at 15h30 aboard an Ethiopian Airways.
The team will spend a night in Ethiopia before connecting to Bamako on Wednesday morning.
Ahead of departure, Zesco coach George Lwandamina has named an 18-member squad for the crucial match.
The game set for Stade du 26 Mars is set to kickoff at 15h00 (17h00 local time).
Zesco and Kaloum drew 1-1 in the first leg played in Ndola a fortnight ago.
