ASEC jet in to face Zesco

Sports ASEC jet in to face Zesco

Côte d’Ivoire’s ASEC Mimosas coach Traore Siaka is predicting that Saturday’s CAF Champions League Group A tie against Zesco United would be tough.

Zesco and ASEC clash at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola after recording a win and a draw each in their respective first two Group A matches.

Speaking on arrival in Ndola on Wednesday, Siaka described Zesco as a tough side.

“I think that it is not an easy game, it will be a very difficulty game. I watched Zesco play they have got a very good team,” Siaka told journalists.

He said Group A which has Wydad Casablanca of Morocco as leaders has remained open after two rounds of matches.

“We are here to play and if we have a chance to win then we will win. We are in a tight and dice group anything can happen even Al Ahly (bottom placed) can also qualify,” Siaka said.

On Zesco’s unbeaten home record in continental matches, Siaka said:”This is football anything can happen. I can’t say we will break that record or we won’t.”

Wydad leads Group A on six points, Zesco and ASEC have three points apiece while, bottom side Ahly have no points after two rounds of matches.
