Kaizer Chiefs, one of the most famous clubs in the continent but have never fight for their place among the African giants. A dent in their reputation they have amended this evening after forcing Moroccan giants Wydad Club Athletics to a barren draw (1:0 in aggregate) to book their finals spot in their first appearance. Congratulations!
Amakhosi faced a major setback ahead of their second leg match against Wydad when some of their players were ruled out having been in contact with persons who tested positive of Covid-19. They were forced to play with only five players on their substitute bench.
Chiefs only made two changes to the squad that beat Wydad 1:0 away in Morocco. Shot-stopper Bruce Bvuma was replaced by Nigerian Daniel Akpeyi and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo starting in place of Leonardo Castro.
The resilient managed to keep their backline and defend their slim win away from home to book a date with the winner between the second Semi-Finals encounter pitting African giants Al Ahly SC and Esperance Sportive de Tunis.
Kaizer Chiefs last reach a continental cup finals in 2001 where they beat Angola’s Interclube to win the African Cup Winners Cup.
They are now the third South African side to reach the CAF Champions League Final, after Mamelodi Sundowns (2001 & 2016) and great rivals Orlando Pirates (1995 & 2013).
