Nyasa Big Bullets must avoid past mistakes and make sure they utilise home ground advantage in the preliminary round of the 2022 Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League against Tanzanian outfit, Simba Sports Club, football analyst Kim Kamau has said.
Bullets have a date against the Tanzania side at the Bingu National Stadium (BNS) on Saturday.
Last time the People’s Team were in the competition, they did well to beat South African side, Amazulu 1-0 away, but succumbed to 3-1 home defeat to be booted out of the competition.
Kamau said Bullets should learn from what has happened to them against Amazulu, as well as what befell the Malawi national football team in the recent Africa National Championship (CHAN) qualifier against Mozambique when they lost on away goals rule.
The match at the BNS ended 1-1 in the first leg against Mozambique while the return leg ended goalless.
"(In the home match) Bullets should score goals and not let Simba score a goal as that will be crucial in the second leg match,” Kamau said.
Kamawu further urged Malawians to give Bullets support as it is the only team from the country taking part in the tournament this year.
The two teams will face off in the second leg match of the preliminary round on 18th September in Tanzania.
