The Zebras endured an unimpressive start in the first leg of the CHAN Tournament and it remains to be seen if the team will recover im the second leg.

The team will be hoping to bounce back when they travel to Antananarivo to take on their stubborn opponents, who have been very impressive in the tournament.

Nevertheless, both teams could do without the distractions of the first leg given that they have recorded impressive victories in the first round of the tournament but their last game was far from impressive.

From Madagascar’s perspective, everything is heading in the right direction. After a 1-0 win away from home, the team will need to keep their defensive shape and carry the momentum to the final whistle, they will also want to

catch the Zebras on the counter and kill off the game.

Although local coach Mpote will likely add several other players to his first-team squad, to make the Zebras feel like a team very much in transition and who are ready to find a solution to their issues with scoring goals.

Thero Setsile, Godfrey Tauyatswala will be expected to start the game or at least be introduced early into the game to give Mpote’s side some dimensions up front. The team does not have anyone to rely on for goals.

However, the team also needs to maintain a rigid defensive line with Mosha Gaolaolwe leading the backline as the team captain; he is expected to command a very solid defense and prevent the team from conceding silly goals.

The Zebras visit the stubborn Madagascar in Antananarivo where they will be looking to reverse the goals and turn around the fixture in their favour.
