Ahead of their CAF Champions League Group A clash against ZESCO United, SEC Mimosas coach Traore Siaka remains wary of their hosts.

Speaking on arrival in Zambia, the coach acknowledged the quality of the George Lwandamina-coached outfit.

The Côte d’Ivoire side head into the match with confidence; having defeated Al Ahly 2-1 in Egypt in their previous group tie.

They currently occupy second spot in the group standings with three points, equal with the Zambian side.


“I think that it is not an easy game, it will be a very difficulty game. I watched Zesco play they have got a very good team,” Siaka told the media.

“We are here to play and if we have a chance to win then we will win. We are in a tight and dice group - anything can happen even Al Ahly (bottom placed) can also qualify.

"This is football anything can happen. I can’t say we will break that record or we won’t.”

On the other hand, ZESCO will hope to bag a win and erase the 2-0 loss they suffered against group leaders, Wydad Casablanca, last time out.

The encounter is scheduled to be staged in Ndola on Saturday afternoon, at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. Kick-off is at 15h00.
