Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs will feel confident of advancing to the next
round of the CAF Confederations Cup when they meet Zanzibar's Zimamoto in
Tuesday's Preliminary Round second-leg clash at Amaan Stadium in Zanzibar City.
Chiefs go into the encounter with a commanding 4-0 first leg
advantage after demolishing the minnows last Wednesday at the Nelson Mandela

Absa Premiership clash on Saturday, it does not appear it will affect the
outcome against the Indian Ocean Archipelago.
As such, Tuesday's clash is seemingly nothing more than a
dead-rubber although Amakhosi coach Giovanni Solinas has warned his side not to
be complacent in difficult conditions.

the park in their own backyard.
"The pitch is an artificial turf which is different

"Also, it's very humid, which will bring another

of back-to-back matches we are playing and the travelling."
Chiefs have virtually a full-strength squad available apart
from right-back Ramahlwe Mphahlele who did not travel due to an unspecified
The Italian speaking of the defender's absence concluded:
"Rama didn't join. We just hope that his injury is not severe."
