The Brazilians take on Chippa United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in their first round TKO fixture on Saturday with proceedings scheduled to get underway at 20h15.

Pitso Mosimane’s charges go into the game in a confident mood after winning two back to back league games after a relatively slow start to the season

Downs have never lifted the TKO and Razak is confident that this will be the year they are finally able to get their hands on the trophy but is aware that they will face stiff competition on their way.

“Every competition is important for a club of our calibre and, yes, we are ready, especially after winning two matches on the trot.”

“Whoever comes across us gives their best and that means we must bring our A-game. Who thought Ajax would go and beat Chiefs in the MTN8 final?”

“That shows that no team can be taken for granted. The ball is in our court to do well and I am sure we will lift the Telkom Knockout trophy at the end of the competition,” Razak told Soccer Laduma.
