Cape Town - Mozambique will head to Seychelles this weekend for what should be the formality of wrapping up their 2016 African Nations Championships (CHAN) preliminary round tie.
The Mambas head to Victoria with a 5-1 lead in their back pockets, having claimed an emphatic win in the first leg in Beira last month which sees them with one foot already in the next round.
Mozambique secured their big victory thanks to a hat-trick from Luis, as well as single strikes from Reinildo and Diogo. Gervais Waye-Hive scored the islanders’ consolation goal.
The Pirates are unlikely to have the firepower to overturn the tie on home soil, though they will have hopes of at least picking up a positive result against a team which is placed over 100 places higher on FIFA’s world rankings.
The winners of the tie will face either Namibia or Zambia in the final round playoffs in October. The former lead 2-1 after the first leg in Windhoek last month.
