Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs left-back Tsepo Masilela is still confident about his team's prospects of advancing to the second round of the CAF Champions League, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat against Raja Casablanca at the weekend.

South African teams are notorious for travelling badly in continental competitions and there are many who feel that Chiefs' prospects of advancing have been significantly diminished, especially as the first leg of this fixture was contested in South Africa.

“It's a two-legged match and it's not over yet,” Masilela told Soccer Laduma.

“They won here and we can also go to Morocco and win,” added the Chiefs defender.

As is often the case, Chiefs' ability to create and convert opportunities will be scrutinized ahead of the second leg but Masilela is confident that the club will be able to exploit the chances which present themselves in Casablanca.

“We just have to convert our chances and score goals which will help us win the away much.

“We have seen them and we know what to expect when we play against them in the return match,” added Masilela.
