Zimbabweâ€™s CAF Champions League representatives, Dynamos who return to the continental stage this weekend say they have not yet given up the fight for a place in the semi finals of the continental competition and will fight to the bitter end when they take on TP Mazembe in a group stage encounter in the DRC on Sunday.
As the group stage of the CAF Champions League nears completion, Dynamos are in a precarious position on the Group A log.
The Harare giantsâ€™ aspirations of lifting the Champions League crown for the very first time were dealt a massive blow after succumbing to aÂ 3-0 defeat to Entente Setif when they needed nothing short of a victory to keep their continental ambitions alive.
Despite anchoring the log, Dynamos coach Elvis Chiweshe said theyâ€™ve not given up on the fight.
â€œWe still in with a chance. The last time I said our match against Entente Setif was our turning point, so itâ€™s the same for the match against TP Mazembe in the DRC. We need to win that match and then beat Esperance at home, and I believe itâ€™s still possible to qualify for the semi finals,â€ said Chiweshe.
Dynamos anchor the Group A log after collecting just three out of a possible 12 points in the mini league to date.
They however still have a chance, albeit a slim one of progressing to the last four of the continents premier club competition.
What makes their situation difficult is that their destiny is not in their hands as they have to rely on results in other matches going in their favour, while winning their last two matches against TP Mazembe and Esperance.
The reality of a great escape will come under public scrutiny when Dynamos square off with TP Mazembe in the DRC on Sunday.
DeMbare would be hoping to give the Congolese giants a taste of their own medicine, following the two 2-0 loss to the defending African Champions in their first match of the group stage almost two months ago.
