They are now aiming at extending their faultless with an away win against TP Mazembe who Rhulani Mokwena sees as very interesting team. A win will see them keeping the Group B top position.

“Interesting team, very good team, defensively very strong,” said Mokwena soon after the team’s arrival in Lubumbashi, per Kickoff.

“We have watched their last three games, they played the derby and played both [games against] Al Hilal. So in relation to what we have seen, it’s a 4-4-1-1 but it’s going to be interesting because we still have to tactically activate ourselves and make sure that we are ready for a team that have got complex personalities and are very aggressive.

“They push wings and full-backs very high but can also be conservative and sitting in a block and play on a counter, because they have fast players up front. It’s going to be interesting to see what sort of personalities they adopt because they need the three points more than us.”
