Napsa Stars coach Linos Makwaza has cautioned Green Buffaloes to show more hunger in attack against El Masry for them to save their 2018 CAF Confederation Cup season.
Buffaloes warmed-up for Tuesday’s critical home date against the Egyptians with a 1-0 win and 1-1 draw in two friendly’s played on Saturday at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka where they will also hosts Hossam Hassan’s side on February 20.
The army side faces an uphill battle against El Masry after losing 4-0 away in Port Said on February 10 in their preliminary round, first leg match.
Buffaloes must realistically score four goals without reply and hope for a dramatic qualification via post-match penalties to the penultimate knockout round of this years CAF Confederation Cup.
“It was a good test match against Buffaloes and I think we learnt one or two things,” Makwaza said.
“I think GBFC should up their game especially their frontline because the Egyptians will come with delaying tactics and they will play counter-attacking football.
“So they must be wary of that.”
The 1991 CAF Winners Cup winner with Power Dynamos has experienced a lot of highs and lows against Egyptian opposition as a player for both club and country during 18-year player career.
