Squads & Team News

Dan Malesela, TS Galaxy, April 2019

Galaxy head coach Dan Malesela will be looking to ensure his side secures a home victory without conceding a goal.

The Rockets will be boosted by the return of Botswana international Thero Setsile, who missed the team's match against the Nedbank Ke Yona Team last weekend as he was on national duty.

The left-footed winger scored the only goal of the game as the National First Division (NFD) side overcame Saint Louis in the second-leg clash in Victoria.

CNaPS also paraded a strong side and looked dangerous from opening whistle

CNaPS head coach Patrick Andriambololona will be keen to ensure his side grabs away goals while avoiding a defeat in the process.

The tactician will look to the experienced duo of Jean Dieu-Donné Randrianasolo and Ando Rakotondrazaka, who are Madagascar national team players.

Goalkeeper Randrianasolo was part of the Barea squad at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals, while defender Rakotondrazaka netted for CNaPS against Zimbabwe's FC Platinum in last season's Caf Champions League.

However, the Mpumalanga-based side has tasted only one win in their last five home games and they will be keen to improve their record.

While CNaPS are winless in their last six away matches in Caf competitions having registered five defeats and one draw.

They succumbed to a narrow 1-0 defeat to FC Platinum in Zvishavane in their last away continental game which was a Champions League clash.
