Coach Beston Chambeshi has vowed that Nkana are determined to end North African’s dominance over Zambian teams when they face Algerian side CR Belouizdad in the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup first round next month.
Nkana will visit CR Belouizdad during the match dates of March 6-7 in the first leg tie before the Kitwe return match 10 days later.
Belouizdad advanced to the first round following a 2-0 home win over Onze Createurs of Mali on Tuesday.
“It’s nice we now know the team we are going to play against. It’s just a matter of psyching our players,” Chambeshi said.
“I know one or two things on how Arabs play. This is football. For sure things must start changing now,” he said.
Chambeshi revealed that Kalampa will target to score an away goal in the first leg.
“They will be at home but we will play an open game. We need a goal from that end. Nowadays there is no home ground advantage,” he said.
Winner will advance to the pre-group round in April where they will be drawn against the losers from next month’s pre-group stage of the 2018 CAF Champions League.
