Kaizer Chiefs winger Khama Billiat has reacted to the CAF Champions League draw, and Chiefs’ opponents in Group C.
Chiefs have been draw alongside Guinea’s Horoya, Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca and Angola’s Atletico Petroleos
Billiat, who won the CAF Champions League with Mamelodi Sundowns, says while it is a tough group, if they Chiefs’ win their home games, they can do well in the group.
This will be the first time Chiefs playing against Guinean opponents and Billiat says the trip to Guinea will be tricky.
“Travelling to Guinea won’t be easy but it takes a lot of determination and sacrifice to travel and win on the road in other parts of the continent,” Billiat told Chiefs’ website.
“Horoya run a lot, are very physical and hardworking as a team. They have been in the group stages in three of the last four seasons. We respect that, but they also have weaknesses which can be to our advantage.”
“Wydad are strong and have been very dominant in recent years. While it won’t be easy, is it possible for us to beat them.”
“We can surprise ourselves as to how far we can go. With the right mindset, awareness and tactical readiness, we can do well. We need to win our home games and get points on the road and then progress in the competition.”
