FCP take on Tunisian giants Etoile Du Sahel in their Group B match at Barbourfields Stadium today. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Sweswe said:
We are now competing for the second time in this stage of the competition having competed for the first time last season and every player now knows what is expected of them, that experience will come in handy.
… on paper, they might be highly rated but football has changed a lot over the past years and we have learnt a lot in previous games. What is important is how we play not how our opponents play, yes we have some knowledge about them and have prepared for their approach but we are not going to let that derail us from our own style of play.
In their first group matches of the 2019/20 edition of the tournament, FCP lost 1-2 away to Sudanese side AL Hilal while Etoile beat record Champions League winners Ahl Ahly 1-0 in Tunisia.
FCP played in the Champions League last season but exited at the group stage without winning a single match.
