CAFCL: Chiefs name strong squad for Simba clash

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has named a strong team for Simba

Kaizer Chiefs have landed in Tanzania ahead of their second leg CAF Champions League quarterfinal clash against giants Simba.

Amakhosi are just 90 minutes away from reaching the semi-finals of the competition and just have to ensure that they avoid the embarrassment of squandering a 4-0 lead which they took in the first leg clash at FNB Stadium last weekend.

Head coach Gavin Hunt has named a strong squad for the clash against Simba, welcoming back goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune who did not play in the first leg. Khune has tons of experience and could start ahead of Bruce Bvuma, who was in goal for the first leg clash.

Chiefs are still without Zimbabwean international Khama Billiat for the clash since he picked up an injury last month, while Dumisani Zuma is also out nursing a knock he sustained recently. Chiefs, though, still have enough in their squad to ensure they wrap up this tie in style.

Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic, who bagged a brace in the first leg, will be a threat in attack, as well as Leonardo Castro.

The clash between the Tanzanian giants and Amakhosi at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium will kick off on Saturday afternoon at 15h00.
