Simba SC head coach Patrick Aussems has acknowledged that their CAF Champions League tie with TP Mazembe will be a historical fixture.
Tanzanian giants Simba reached the quarter-finals after they won all its home games in their group stage campaign.
Mazembe finished atop of Group C with 11 points, losing only once in the six fixtures.
Simba will depend highly on 100% home winning record this season to snatch victory against the five-time African champions, TP Mazembe this Saturday.
"It is a good thing to have such record but beating Mbabane or Nkana is different to TP Mazembe," Aussems said on the CAF website.
"However we managed also to secure victory against our group favourites Al Ahly and AS Vita so we have good confidence ahead of the game.
"We had few days of preparation because of other domestic duties but we will keep that spirit and fight."
Simba have never won a continental title having finished as runners-up in the 1993 CAF Cup.
