Dynamos are virtually clinging by a thread and very well know the huge task that lies before them after losing the reverse fixture 2-nil at home to the Congolese Champions, TP Mazembe who are also the defending champions of the tournament.

 

The Glamour Boys are seated bottom of group A after suffering 3 losses so far in their 4 Caf Champions mini-league phase encounters.

 

Needing nothing short of a victory, DeMbare will be hoping to capitalise on the absence of TP Mazembe midfield maestro Tresor Mputu and Lusadisu Basilela who are both suspended.

 

The Glamour Boys are already a depleted side following the suspension of 7 key players by the Confederation of African Football after protesting against a disallowed goal in their 3-nil defeat to Entente Setif in Algeria.

 

However, the Zimbabwean side will be looking to pounce on Mazembe’s new technical setup after Diego Garzitto who technically inspired Mazembe to glory last year parted ways with DRC giants last Wednesday.

 

With all this in mind, Dembare faithfuls remain optimistic their favourite team will rise from the dead and pull off a Houdini act.

 

Anchoring group A with 3 points, victory is the only result that could keep Dembare with a mathematical chance of progressing to the last four of Africa’s biggest football competition.

Entente Setif lie 3rd with 5 points while TP Mazembe are second on 7 points.

 

Esperance, who became the second team to book a semi-final berth after drawing two all with Entente Setif at the November stadium in Rades on Saturday evening, top group A with 10 points.
