Impossible is nothing

Mochudi Centre Chiefs and Gaborone United start their CAF commitments this weekend with daunting and possibly the hardest fixtures they could have asked for.

The two Gaborone based giants got the toughest draws they could have imagined, and maybe this is an opportunity for them to show that they can mix it with the African elite. The two teams play established sides in their own leagues, who are better resourced and have played in the CAF competitions, and have gone very far. However, football is not played by resources and all is dependent on what happens in the 180 minutes of the game over the 2 legs. Although the 2 local sides are the under dogs; impossible is nothing.  

Magosi take on Zimbabwean powerhouse Power Dynamos. The Zimbabwean side is an established name in African football and has always mixed it up with their West and North African counterparts in the latter stages of the competition. It is no surprise that they are favoured to sweep aside Magosi. The Mochudi side has been dominating local football, but have not made much of a mark in the continental Championships and their supporters are hoping for a much better performance than they put up last year when they were mauled by DRC’s TP Mazembe.
