Gould was talking to the Chiefs' website ahead of their first round clash at home against Muculmana of Mozambique on Saturday night
AmaKhosi host Mozambican club Muculmana in the first round of this year's competition at the Moses Mabhida on Saturday, and Gould is confident that they will get to the second round.
"It is a very important game as we would like to do well in the Caf games. It is highly important to use your home advantage so you can progress to the next stage," Gould told the Chiefs' website.
"Home games are must win games so that when we play away, even a draw can get us through. It is highly important to do what we plan to do and to get to the second round," he said.
The 30-year-old former SuperSport United skipper has promised an attacking game from the first whistle, and he added that they value the Caf Champions League as much as they value domestic competitions.
"We are going on with business as usual. The coach expects us to attack and not to hold back in any game we play. We share the same respect for all competitions - Caf, Nedbank Cup and the League - It's a normal game at home.
"When you go away that's when it becomes a mind game that's when you have to adjust your mind to expect some difficulties, that's how the Caf competitions are," added Gould.
