Kaizer Chiefs Name Strong Squad For CAF Champions League Semi-final Against Wydad Casablanca

Kaizer Chiefs new head coach Stuart Baxter has named a strong squad that will travel to Morocco for their African Champions League semi-final, first leg clash against Wydad Casablanca.

The Amakhosi qualified for their first ever Champions League last four after securing a 4-3 aggregate victory over Tanzania side Simba Sports Club.

Chiefs managed to secure a 4-0 in the Pretoria but Simba mercilessly ripped apart their opponents in the return leg match played in Victoria on 22nd of May, but the win was not enough to overturn the aggregate score.

The South African giants will be without Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Lebogang Manyama who join the injury list that already has Khama Billiat and Dumsani Zuma.

Three top goalkeepers led by Itumeleng Khune, Daniel Akpeyi and Bruce Bvuma have been included in the squad for the match that will be played at Mohamed v Stadium.

The Saturday’s clash will be the third meeting between the two sides as they met in groups stages of the competition earlier this season.

Wydad thumped Chiefs 4-0 in a Group C encounter at home in February 2021, but Amakhosi got their revenge in the reverse fixture as they emerged 1-0 winners in Johannesburg last month.

Chiefs will leave the country on Wednesday 16 June on a special charter flight and will leave Morocco on Sunday morning.

Kaizer Chiefs traveling squad:

Goalkeepers: Bruce Bvuma, Daniel Akpeyi, Itumeleng Khune

Defenders: Njabulo Blom, Philani Zulu, Daniel Cardoso, Reeve Frosler, Kgotso Moleko, Siyabonga Ngezana, Yagan Sasman, Darrel Matsheke, Erick Mathoho, Anthony Agay

Midfielders: Kearyn Baccus, Willard Katsande, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Happy Mashiane

Forwards: Lazalous Kambole, Bernard Parker, Leonardo Castro, Samir Nurković
