Starting XI: Chiefs v Zimamoto

CAF Champions League 

Teams: Kaizer Chiefs v Zimamoto

Date: 28 November 2018

Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Kaizer Chiefs begin their CAF Confederation Cup journey at home to Tanzanian outfit Zimamoto this evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.

The AmaKhosi qualified for the continental tournament after finishing third in the Absa Premiership last season.

Chiefs were last involved in the Confederation Cup back in 2014, but they were knocked out in the play-offs stage by ASEC Mimosas.

The Soweto giants have opted not to fill up all the spots in the squad, although Gustavo Paez, Bhongolethu Jayiya, Wiseman Meyiwa and Kgotso Moleko were omitted from the squad.

Giovanni Solinas' men will need to pick themselves up after they suffered a 2-1 defeat to rivals Orlando Pirates over the weekend.

Zimamoto were involved in the preliminary stage in the last edition but they were eliminated by Welayta Dicha.

Here's how they line up:

Chiefs: Vries, Cardoso, Mathoho, Hadebe, Ntiya-Ntiya, Katsande, Manyama, Andrianarimanana, Mahlasela, Billiat, Castro.

Subs: Bvuma, Ngezana, Zulu, Zuma, Parker, Maluleka, Ekstein.
