Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi believes Sewe Sport of Cote d'Ivoire will win the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup.

Sewe host Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the first leg final this Saturday in Abidjan.

Nkana, Sewe and Al Ahly were earlier drawn together in Group B of the competition before the latter duo clinched their semifinal berths after finishing in the top two in August.

Sewe drew 1-1 with Nkana in their opening Group B meeting before the Zambia club fell 3-0 in Abidjan.

Al Ahly beat Nkana 2-0 in Cairo and later lost 1-0 away in Kitwe.

"I think Sewe stand a good chance of winning the Cup although I cannot rule out Al Ahly, they have played in continental competition for so many years and they know how to tackle Cup finals. But I expect an interesting final," Chambeshi said.

Chambeshi said the recent promotion of Sewe striker Roger Assale, midfielder Koffi Kouame and goalkeeper Sylvain Gohouo to the Cote d'Ivoire national team shows their quality.

"I have seen the Sewe players and some of them are now in the national team and (Cote d'Ivoire coach) Herve Renard has shown his confidence in them so I foresee that experience also coming good for them," Chambeshi said.

Sewe and Al Ahly drew 1-1 in their first leg Group B meeting before the Egyptians beat the Ivorians 1-0 in the return leg in Cairo.
