“Playing on the continent tells you that they must have recruited a continental team, so we expect nothing less than a very tough opposition.

“Sometimes, when a team loses out in a continental competition, you can take advantage of that because the team could be psychologically affected and we hope we can go there and get a positive result from there,” state the Oracle as the gaffer is fondly called

The two teams go into the game coming from the heels of contrasting results as Shooting Stars kick-started their 2023/24 season campaign with a 2-1 win over Plateau United while Insurance gallantly crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup, after narrwly losing to RS Berkane.
