Dynamos ready for Champions League



After defeating their Bulawayo rivals Highlanders 2-1 in the Bob 89 Super Cup first-leg on Sunday, the only Zimbabwean team playing in the Caf Champions League this year Dynamos are ready for the continental tournament.

Coach Callisto Pasuwa told supersport.com that though they have lost some regular players from last season, they have assembled a good squad this year.

DeMbare start their campaign in the preliminary stage at home on 17 February against Lesotho Correctional Services, with the return leg set for the weekend of 1-3 March.

The Harare giants are tipped to easily progress to the first round where a stern test awaits them as they will face the winner between Club Berzetin of Tunisia and Ettihad of Libya – but Pasuwa said they will take the game very seriously and fight for the results on the field of play.

“After our games against Mamelodi Sundowns and Highlanders, I think I can say we are ready for the first-leg Champions League game against Lesotho Correctional Services. We just have to continue our preparations as the game is this weekend,” Pasuwa said.

If they manage to go past the first round, Dynamos will face CAF Champions League Cup holders Al Ahly of Egypt in the second round.

Pasuwa has retained a number of players from last season will hope that goalkeeper George Chigova, defensive stalwart Patson Jaure, Ocean Mushure, Thomas Magorimbo, Cliff Sekete and skipper Tawanda Muparati – who were part of the team that played in last season’s Champions League – are up to the task this time around.
