Having defeated Namibia’s African Stars in their last Champions League match in December, Bucs qualified for the group stages, where they will begin this stage of the competition against FC Platinum of Zimbabwe. 

The Zimbabwean outfit last played a competitive match on December 22, against Congolese side AS Otoho in the same prestigious continental competition. 

In their last five matches, Platinum won only once and drew the other four matches. Their last match against Otoho was a 0-0 draw. 

Meanwhile, Bucs have played two competitive matches already this year, against Highlands Park and Chippa United respectively.

Head coach Milutin Sredojevic believes that the two matches have prepared the team well for the continuation of their CAF campaign. 

“First of all, it’s never easy after festive season to restart the engine. We had those two matches (Highlands Park and Chippa United) and I believe those two matches are perfect preparation for the match that we are having in Bulawayo this Saturday,” Sredojevic told the media after the Chippa match.

The match on Saturday at the Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo will be played on Saturday.
