It’s Now Tough To Reach Knockout Stages – Sweswe

FC Platinum assistant coach Lizwe Sweswe has admitted that it is now a herculean task for his club to qualify for the knockout stages of the CAF Champions League.

Sweswe made the remarks following his club’s 1-1 with Egyptian giants Al Ahly at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday. He said:

It’s now tough because we wanted the three points so that we could stay in the competition.

I am happy about the improvement of the team compared to the previous games that we played against these three teams.

At least we have some positives and we take those as we look forward to the coming games.

The Zimbabwean champions lost their first three Group B and are now on 1 point while Sahel are on 9 points, Al Ahly on 7, and Al Hilal on 6 points after 4 games.

Even if FC Platinum win their last two games against Al Hilal of Sudan at home and Tunisian giants Étoile du Sahel away, it won’t be enough to progress to the quarter-finals.
