Kaizer Chiefs are competing in the CAF Champions League for the first time in their history and although they have travelled the continent before, especially in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Amakhosi's opponents Wydad Casablanca settled for Ouagadougou as the neutral ground to host the match after the Soweto giants were denied visas to enter Morocco due to Covid-19 restrictions, which saw the match being postponed.

The Glamours instead opened their Group C campaign against Guinean side Horoya on Tuesday in a goalless draw where they rued missed chances at FNB Stadium.

And they now face a must-win game against Wydad at Stae du 4 Aout Stadium, as the Moroccan outfit won their first match against Petro de Luanda and are lying third on the mini-log, just a point behind leaders Horoya, who have four points.

Chiefs are third in the section with one point and can't afford to drop more points if they are to have a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.

The goalless stalemate against Horoya extended Amakhosi's winless streak to seven matches, with their last win coming way back on 19 January when they beat Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 3-0.

However, Chiefs have a decent record away from home, winning three in their last five matches on the road, drawing one and losing one against Orlando Pirates in the Soweto derby.

According to SowetanLive, Bafana Bafana have played at the venue in October 2016 in a FIFA World Cup qualifier where they were held to a 1-1 draw by Burkina Faso and also lost the 1998 Africa Cup of Nations final to Egypt at the same venue.

Former Bafana striker Siyabonga Nomvethe has warned Chiefs of the challenges they could face in Ouagadougou.

"They need to be careful with everything, and once you are that side, they don’t care about you. Those people there can try to do everything to frustrate you by also playing mind games. Chiefs will need to be strong mentally and not let those things affect them," Nomvethe told SowetanLive.

Amakhosi have won their two away games so far in the competition, beating PWD Bamenda 1-0 in the preliminary round and also edged Primeiro de Agosto by the same scoreline in their backyard in the first round.

Do you think Chiefs can come away with victory in Burkina Faso?
