Moundou of Chad at the Reunification Stadium in the first leg of their
preliminary round, first leg clash.
Union Douala captain Gustave Moundi has said
they knew very little about their opponents but are very a clear of what their
We are preparing this match against the
Chadian side as we normally do for any other game. But we have no idea at all
about them and will only find out at the stadium.
Union Sportives objective is however to go
as far as possible in this CAF Confederation Cup, said the Nassaras skipper
Gustave Moundi to AfricanFootball.com.
A regular in the continental campaigns, Union
Douala enjoyed African glory 35 years ago when they were crowned in the most
prestigious of all clubs competitions in a penalty shoot-out win against
Ghanas Hearts of Oak in the final.
We are aiming for the Group phase of the competition
this year, added Unions coach Théophile Feunku, whose side fell to FUS Rabat
of Morocco in the first round of the CAF Champions league last season.
