The national champions, 1º de Agosto, will play on the opponent's ground and will be the first to enter the scene at 2 pm in the 50,000-seat Nkoloma stadium.

The team travelled at full strength after the recovery of Ary Papel, Nelson Luz and Ibukun, influential players in the offensive manoeuvre of the team being coached by the Serbian Dragan Jovic.

The team augurs a satisfactory result, which can allow them to be relatively in tranquillity for the second-leg challenge, in Luanda, on September 29.

In the previous round, 1º de Agosto beat KMKM FC of Tanzania, with a 2-0 win in Dar es Salaam, the same result in the second leg clash at 11 de Novembro Stadium, in Luanda.
