Despite conceding against SuperSport United, TP Mazembe coach Phampile Mihayo says they will have a good plan for their return leg this weekend.
The Ravens beat the South African side 2-1 in the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup final at home on Sunday afternoon.
Mihayo’s troops netted through Adama Traore and Daniel Adjei, but they conceded in the second half when Sipho Mbule dribbled past his marker to unleash a powerful strike that caught the keeper napping.
However, Mihayo, who was also a former captain of the side, said they will need to have an even better and stronger game plan in the return leg.
“We wanted to play well and win the game because we are home and needed to be offensive,” said Mihayo to CAF.
“Going to Pretoria will be difficult and they will pressurise us from the onset but we will have a plan that will give us the desired result.
“They are a very good side which isn’t easily broken down but we will have a good game plan.”
The return leg is set to be staged at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, November 25 at 20:15 (CAT).
