Ntseki: We have the answers

Kaizer Chiefs coach, Molefi Ntseki, insists that his side have the answers for Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of the the MTN8 semi-final, first leg.

Amakhosi will play the first leg at home on Saturday, 2 September before the away second leg on Saturday, 23 September.

“In our own analysis we have picked up certain areas of the game we have to look at when playing Sundowns tomorrow,” said Ntseki. “We have also done analysis on Sundowns, how they build up, how they progress into the final third and how they add numbers and have multiple movements in the last third.

“So, I think we have the answers to that. But we are focused on ourselves and what our strengths are coming into this game.

“We know we are a very quick forward-play type of team and we have very good individual players on the ball. What is important is how we make them shine how we make them get more goals and how we make them enjoy the game in terms of possession. “

“So, our analysis has been done both ways, for our opponents and for ourselves. In terms of the tactics, I think it is something we will carry over from the last two matches into this match, so that everybody is ready and understands what is expected of him in possession and out of possession.

“But the most important thing is we’ve been scoring goals from set plays, which makes us feel very confident going into this game.

“In the last two matches we did not concede anything, so I think it’s important that it’s a ‘zero concede’ game tomorrow and the most important thing is for us to score the goals.”

Chiefs kicked off the season with a draw against Chippa United before a 2-1 defeat against Sundowns two days later.

But after back-to-back wins against Amazulu and Stellenbosch, Ntseki believes the two wins were important for the momentum of his team.

“It was a very important win (against Stellenbosch in midweek) coming into this game. “The turnaround period was a bit short in terms of the preparation for this game, and also the freshness from a physical point of view. But our sports science department has done very well to keep the players fresh and apply all the recovery mechanisms.”
