Despite carrying a 4-1 advantage into the second leg of their CAF Champions League first round match against Algeriaâ€™sÂ Moloudia Club Dâ€™Alger this weekend, Dynamos coach, Lloyd Mutasa says theyâ€™re not leaving anything to chance in their quest to emerge victorious in North Africa.
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 thereâ€™s still a lot to play for, hence theyâ€™re not getting carried away by the flattering 4-1 advantage.
â€œIf 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,â€ said Mutasa.
Mutasa said theyâ€™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.
â€œWe know the kind of officiating that happens there and how teams get mistreated to frustrate them so weâ€™re telling the players to be fully prepared . Weâ€™re entering a jungle, so we expect anything but above all we want to remain focused and hopefully weâ€™ll emerge victorious,â€ 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 Africaâ€™s premier competition.
Dynamos are expected to depart for Algeria on Wednesday afternoon.
