Speaking to ANGOP, 1º de Agosto assistant coach, Ivo Traça, has regretted the absence of the players in the team’s offensive manoeuvre, adding that fortunately there are players in the squad that can fill the void.

The match is of great importance to the Angolan team struggling to improve their position of the last African champions league edition, where they were eliminated in the first preliminary round by AS Otoho of Congo Brazzaville.

Given the 2-0 advantage gained away from home, 1º de Agosto are favourites.

If they beat KMKM FC in the next round the team will face the winner of the match between Green Eagles (Zambia) and Orlando Pirates from South Africa.
