After registering a phenomenal 4-1 victory in the first leg of the continental competition, a winning margin that was beyond the expectations of many football followers.

Dynamos are now focusing on finishing off the Algerians in their backyard this weekend, despite carrying a comfortable cushion into the second leg, Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa says there’s still a lot to play for, hence they’re not getting carried away by the flattering 4-1 advantage.

“If you play away from home, considering the margin we won by, we expect the Algerians to come at us from the start. What we want to do is to frustrate them by preventing them from scoring an early goal while at the same time trying to unsettle them by scoring first,” said Mutasa.

Mutasa said they’re working on enhancing the mental strength of the players in light of the psychological warfare that has become a common feature in African football.

“We know the kind of officiating that happens there and how teams get mistreated to frustrate them so we’re telling the players to be fully prepared . We’re entering a jungle, so we expect anything but above all we want to remain focused and hopefully we’ll emerge victorious,” said Mutasa.

With a 4-1 advantage to count on, the Glamour Boys are well poised to throw the Algerian champions by the wayside and progress to the second round of Africa’s premier competition.

Dynamos are expected to depart for Algeria on Wednesday afternoon.
