Horoya’s goalkeeper, Moussa Camara, has reiterated on the importance of winning their match against Bucs for his team to qualify for the quarter-finals of the continental competition.

Horoya are in second place on Group B standings with seven points after five matches, while Pirates are third with six points.

Defending champions Esperance of Tunisia are at the top of the standings with 11 points and have become the first qualifiers for the Champions League quarter-finals after they beat Horoya 2-0 on Friday.

“I will do everything to continue on this momentum and always help my club once the game is over. My goal is to play well against the Fello Star and then prepare with all my eldest for this important meeting that will be played on Saturday against Orlando Pirates,” Camara told Horoya’s official website.

It must allow us all to enter in the story, so I do not minimize any match whatsoever in the league or in the African campaign. We have coaches to remind us (translated and edited),” added the goalkeeper.
