FC Platinum fly out to Guinea today for a date with Horoya AC at the Stade du 28 Septembre on Tuesday.
FC Platinum need nothing but a win to have any hope of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Total CAF Champions League.
Coach Norman Mapeza told Daily News that hope is not yet totally lost. He insisted that anything is possible with three games left. He said:
All hope is not lost. We can’t say we are out of it already. There is still hope after all. There are still three matches to play and anything is possible.
We have learnt our lessons and we continue to learn going forward. It’s very possible to go and get a win in Guinea; nothing is impossible. All we need to do is to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes we did in the previous matches.
It’s not a secret that we put ourselves in a difficult position but giving up at this stage is not an option. We just need to continue believing in ourselves and see what happens at the end.
FC Platinum have not yet won a single match in the group stages, neither have they scored a single goal.
