Africa’s flagship club competition the CAF Champions League resumes this weekend as Black Africa prepares to take on glamour side Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend in the preliminary round of the competition.
The South African team edged Black Africa 3 – 0 in the first leg and they go into the match with an overwhelming advantage. Kaizer Chiefs currently heads the PSL log standings with 9 points and have been in good form, winning nine matches on the trot. The winning streak came to an end when the Glamour Boys locked horns with Maritzburg United and played to a 2 all draw on Tuesday.

Black Africa on the other hand are in contention for the Premier League back home and trail log leaders Tigers by only 2 points. Black Africa have also not participated in the Bidvest Namibia Cup yet because of their continental quest.
Brian Isaacs, Head Coach of Black Africa responded to questions by The Economist and said, “We were defensive because we played away, we didn’t have as much possesion as we had hoped for. We put up a brave face. The boys were overcome by stage fright. We can put in a good show. We will attack this time and put them under pressure. We are playing at home so we have an advantage this time around.
As it stands, Kaizer Chiefs is in a favourable position to progress to the next round of the competition and Black Africa will have to put on an impressive show to edge the Glamour Boys over the weekend.The match will kick off at 16:00 at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday.
