Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Dean Furman says that leaving Angola with a victory and clean sheet is possible.

According to Soccer Laduma, Furman suggests that Shakes Mashaba’s charges have what it takes to take on Angola in their own back yard and seal the deal in Durban four days later.

"This first leg is a very important game," said Furman.

"We have played Angola and we know how they play but what is important for us is to win the game on Friday, but also keep a clean sheet.

"On Tuesday we can then just wrap it up in Durban and qualify for the group stages. Obviously it won't be easy against Angola but we can do it."

The first clash is set for Friday at the Ombaka National Stadium in Benguela, Angola. Kick-off is at 15:30 (16:30 SA time).

Bafana Bafana will then host Angola on Tuesday, November 17 in Durban at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:00.
