AmaKhosi hold a 4-0 lead going into Saturday's Caf Champions League clash at Liga Muculmana, and Tshabalala tells Goal that they won't be trying too hard to win the gameEXCLUSIVE

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala has told Goal that the entire team is calm ahead of their Caf Champions League clash away to Liga Muculmana on Saturday evening.
AmaKhosi have no reason to fail to make it into the second round of this year's competition, but they will need to protect their 4-0 lead in Maputo.
"We are in a relaxed mood," Tshabalala told Goal. "Of course we want to do well. We want to win, but not at all cost. I think a draw will be sufficient for us," he added.
Tshabalala has formed part of the AmaKhosi squad to Maputo, and is expected to captain the side in the absence of Itumeleng Khune, who's nursing an ankle injury.
Shabba was given the armband in the first leg played in Durban last weekend, and after his non-involvement during Bafana's 5-0 defeat to Brazil, coach Stuart Baxter might be tempted to keep him in his starting line-up.
The AmaKhosi tactician highlighted that he will continue to rotate his squad, but added that he will field the strongest possible team, despite having a four-goal advantage over their opponents.
