That is why if the team is serious and desirous of doing well in the competition, there are key things and important things that could help them.
It's not only about tactics or quality preparation as Kaizer Chiefs under Gavin Hunt, should know that doing well in the CAF Champions League, is a paramount thing for them in a season that has been quite hard and rough.
Conserve Points Away From Home
In a tough and difficult season marred by COVID-19 and transfer ban, which Kaizer Chiefs have never had it rough for them in recent times.
Dropping points away from home in the league and losing to minnows in the Nedbank cup are ghosts that must be put aside if Kaizer Chiefs, want to have a meaningful impact in the CAF Champions League.

In simple words, Kaizer Chiefs must avoid dropping unnecessary points or losing away from home, if they want to quickly assert their position in the group.
How Gavin Hunt, will fashion out wins or at least a draw away from home remains to be seen.
Experience Could Still Come In Play
CAF Champions League competition, is an elite and serious club tournament in Africa that is almost akin to a mini African cup of nations.
That is why, Gavin Hunt must not jettison the importance of using experienced players who have played at such a similar level in the game.
Of course, names like Daniel Akpeyi, Khune, Barker and others vastly experienced players should form part of the core team that will ensure a good performance in the CAF Champions League.
Yes, some of these experienced stars have been found wanting this season, but the ability of a manager to rally or push them to help the team in competition like this, should be the priority of Gavin Hunt.
With hard-work and self belief, there is a good chance Kaizer Chiefs, will have a good tournament as participants in the CAF Champions League.
