Buffaloes in CAF Confederation Cup survival fight

Sports Buffaloes in CAF Confederation Cup survival fight

Green Buffaloes on Tuesday fight to get discharged from the intensive care unit to keep their 2018 CAF Confederation Cup hopes alive.

Buffaloes host Egyptian club El Masry at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka with a major uphill battle to overturn a 4-0 away loss they sustained on February 10 in Port Said.

The army side must score four goals without reply to ensure the tie is decided on post-match penalties that will see the winner over both legs advance to the intermediate round of the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup.

“We want to record a positive result and we have 90 minutes left to play. We have a chance of progressing to the next round,” Buffaloes coach Bilton Musonda said.

But questions are still being asked about Buffaloes porous backline and blunt attack led by Friday Samu who has yet to open his 2018 account following the 14 goals he netted in the 2017 season to finish 3rd on the top scorers chart.

The onus is now firmly on Buffaloes to redeem themselves with a more disciplined performance at home to try and pull-off a dramatic survival plot and qualify to March’s penultimate knockout round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
