Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro has stressed the importance of getting good results at home as the club prepare to face Horoya on Tuesday in the CAF Champions League.
It will be Chiefs’ first game in the group stages, after their previous match away against Wydad was postponed due to Covid-19 related issues.
That game has now supposedly been rescheduled for the 28th of this month, and will be played in neutral Burkina Faso.
Castro, who played CAFCL football with former champions Mamelodi Sundowns, says they need to make sure they get results at home, as it will be a tough experience in the away games.
“Yeah, we play on Saturday, we just need to recover for these two days and we will see how how they play, and we’ll see how we need to play against them because we all know in Champions League it comes a very tough games in group stages,” Castro said in the build-up to Tuesday’s game.
“We need to work hard to get the results, it is not gonna be easy, it’s gonna be a tough game, we need to be clever.”
“We need to play with responsibility, we need to show cleverness in the field to minimize the mistakes. And if we take it, we scored it first. I think we were gonna get the three points.”
“My colleagues, they were talking to me about it, especially when you play against them away games is going to be tough because obviously the weather, the conditions, and so the most important thing for us is to make it count here in our home ground, to win the game, that’s it.”
