Zambian Premier League giants, ZESCO United, are already preparing for their upcoming CAF Champions League tie against ASEC Mimosas next week.

It is reported that United have packed their bags from Ndola to train Lusaka - on an artificial pitch - as they eye their second win over the Cote d'Ivoire side.

The Lusaka Times website has it in good authority that George Lwandamina's side are set to train for three days in the capital city.


United are jetting out of the country on Sunday ,to Abidjan via Johannesburg, having won the first leg 3-1 last week and now want to claim are full three points in the reverse fixture on Wednesday, July 27.

It is revealed that coach Lwandamina is preparing his charges to play on an artificial pitch at Olympic Youth Development Centre and Independence Stadium.

This is in order for the team to adapt to the playing surface of next Wednesdays match venue at Stade Robert Champroux in Abidjan.

The Zambians occupy second spot in Group A with six points, one behind leaders Wydad Casablanca and three ahead of ASEC who are third heading into the fourth round of matches next week.
