Rwanda head coach Johnny McKinstry believes Azam will need an away goal in Tunisia if they are to advance in the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup.

The Tanzania outfit face Esperance de Tunis in a Confederation Cup second round, second-leg fixture in Rades later this month, with the aggregate winner advancing to the play-offs.

Azam scored two goals in as many minutes to secure a 2-1 win in Dar es Salaam on the 10th of April.

"Esperance are very experienced at this level," McKinstry said in an interview with Soka360.

"It is still very tight, 2-1 in the first leg, but now they have got to go to Tunisia and try and finish the job. That won’t be easy.

“I think if they can go and get a goal in Tunisia then they can qualify. I think going to Tunisia and trying to keep it 0-0 is very dangerous.

"If they can get an away goal to match Esperance’s away goal they have got every chance of qualifying, I don’t see Azam conceding two or three goals."

Esperance are two-time CAF Champions League winners, having lifted the coveted trophy in 1994 and 2011.
