Ahead of their high-stakes CAF Champions League match against Guinean power club Horoya AC in Conakry, Kaizer Chiefs manager Gavin Hunt embraced the underdog role for the visitors. Drawing on his previous experience in CAF competition against Horoya as manager of Bidvest Wits, Hunt explained that the club tends to make games very complicated for their opponents. Hunt acknowledged that his club will be hurt by the absences of strong forwards Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, leaving him without a focal point up top capable of holding the ball up.
Kick Off explains the complicated scenario surrounding who will advance if there is a draw. Both teams are currently tied on points but if there is a scoreless draw the hosts will advance. If Chiefs score a goal (1-1, 2-2, etc.) then the visitors from South Africa qualify for the quarter-finals.
