Baxter: Kaizer Chiefs still have a battle to fight in Mozambique

Chiefs recorded their biggest win so far in this competition, and have a great chance of advancing to the second round of the Caf Champions League
Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was happy with the way his charges dominated proceedings against Liga Muculmana of Mozambique in the Caf Champions League on Saturday night.

Rampant AmaKhosi put one foot into the next round of this year's competition with a 4-0 win, but Baxter still believes that they have a battle on their hands in the second leg.

"We had a little period in the first half when we went 2-0 up, then we took the foot off the accelerator a little bit and we sat a little deep," said Baxter after the game.

"Our pressing wasn't as effective and efficient, apart from that we played a very good game, considering it's a two-legged affair and considering now that we have to go and fight a battle at their place," he said.

The Muculmana's technical team admitted that it was always going to be difficult for their players to match AmaKhosi on the night.

"This was not an easy game for us. We knew that Kaizer Chiefs have a lot of experience in this competition.

"We have a lot of players who have never played in this competition before," said Dawood Rasaaq, the assistant coach.
