All Is Not Lost, Khosi!

After losing 1-0 to ASEC Mimosas last weekend, Kaizer Chiefs will do battle against the same outfit in the second leg of their CAF Champions League tie on Sunday.

Following a string of poor results, the Glamour Boys will be hoping to bounce back in this match and show the character of champions. As the most successful club in the country, a lot is expected of them, not only by the Love and Peace faithful, but by the citizens of Mzansi as a whole.

We have to say, however, that it is not going to be an easy one. But all the challenging factors for South African teams doing battle in CAF competitions are an open secret now. If Pirates could do it, so can Chiefs. Remember what they went through against TP Mazembe in 2013? Amakhosi are also capable of weathering the storm.

But it will also be psychological battle. The coach can only give the players his tactics, etc. The big question is: are the players willing to go all the way for the team? Are they geared to put in a never-say-die display on the field of play and wear their hearts on their sleeves? Are they capable of carrying the responsibility on their shoulders for the multitudes of the Khosi Nation?

Let us remember that this is the most successful club in the history of Mzansi football. A lot is expected from Steve Komphela and his troops, especially after failing to live up to expectations in recent times. It's about time they live up to their standards and prove to the rest of the continent they are capable.

As is the case in Europe, the most successful clubs in their respective leagues are automatically expected to do well in continental competitions as well. What does this say about our league if the so-called trophy specialists crumble when it comes to the big stage? If we claim that our league is the best on the continent, a lot is expected from both Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns. All is not lost, Khosi… you can still do it.

Do you think Chiefs can turn the corner by beating ASEC Mimosas at home? How far do you think Chiefs can go in this competition? Share your thoughts below.
