Tanzanian side Simba SC are bracing themselves up for their CAF Champions League clash with Nigeria’s Plateau United and board member, Crescentius Magori is confident they’ll progress to the next round.
The first meeting of the two legged match between Simba SC and Plateau United is slated for this weekend in Nigeria.
While Simba are playing in the continent’s biggest football showpiece for the 9th time, Plateau United are only appearing in competition for the second time in their history.
The former Nigerian champions also failed to make much impact in their debut in 2018 but Simba SC appeared in the quarter-finals in the same season.
Crescentius Magori however believes Simba SC is more experienced than their Nigerian counterparts in the competition.
He also believes their pedigree and experience should be enough to see the twenty-one time Tanzanian champions through into the next round.
“It is a tough match because Nigeria is a continental football powerhouse, but given Simba’s pedigree, we will battle to knock them out, ” Magori said.
“I believe we have a good squad that has what it takes to triumph. We will qualify for the next round.”
