Amakhosi will start their campaign with a clash against Zimamoto from Zanzibar at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth tonight.

Chiefs have been accused of preferring to compete for domestic competitions instead of challenging for a Caf tournaments, but the Italian mentor says they plan on going all the way.

“We want to go all the way in the tournament and win it,” Solinas told the club’s official website. “You can see for yourself – watch the guys train, they really look energetic.”
