Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene says Zesco United cannot be underestimated and that they have potential match-winners who need to be carefully monitored.
Sundowns clash with Zesco in Ndola on Saturday afternoon in the first leg of their CAF Champions League semi-final fixture.
While Sundowns have reached the final of the Champions League before - albeit back in 2001, Zesco have never made it as far as the last four.
Having avoided traditional continental giants such as Al Ahly and ASEC Mimosa, who finished behind Wydad Casablanca and Zesco in the final group phase, Sundowns fans may be thinking that their team were handed a kind draw.
But Zambia international Mweene says Zesco cannot be taken lightly, and adds they have some dangerous players, as well as a top coach in George Lwandamina.
"They have a good coach who is working with both the club and the national team," he told the the Sowetan Live.
"He has coached Green Buffaloes in the Champions League, so he knows how to play in Africa.
"That's why the team is where it is today, because of his experience. He has instilled a lot in the players."
He continued: "They have a lot of good players, especially up-front. They have Clatous Chama. He is a winger and they also have [Jesse] Were.
"They are dangerous players. If we do not pay attention to them, they can hammer us. It will be tough, but we have done our homework.
"We are familiar with the conditions in Zambia. We have played there before (during pre-season last year) and we know the place properly."
