Zanaco face Tunisian test

Sports Zanaco face Tunisian test

Zanaco are seeking to enhance their chances of reaching the group stages of the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup as they face Tunisia’s Stade Gabesien in the second round.

The Bankers on Saturday host Stade Gabesien in a second round, first leg match at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Zanaco are hoping to record a positive result at home ahead of the return leg scheduled for April 19 in Tunisia.

Coach Mumamba Numba is praying that the winning start in the FAZ Super Division will motivate Zanaco when they clash against Stade Gabesien.

The 2015 Super Division runners-up beat Nchanga Rangers 2-0 away on Sunday in a Week 3 fixture to make a 100 percent start to their domestic campaign.

“I think the win gives us a good starting point and it is a motivation for the upcoming game in the Confederation Cup,” Numba said.

“We are now focusing on facing the Tunisia club and we really have to work hard.”

Zanaco advanced to the second round of the Confederation Cup after a 5-2 aggregate win over Harare City of Zimbabwe in March.

The Lusaka club enjoyed a preliminary round bye from this year’s Confederation Cup.
