    #1 Aishi Manula

    The experienced goalkeeper will be in goal as Wekundu wa Msimbazi take on Plateau United. He has to ensure the defense is well organized to avoid conceding away. He will also be needed to be alert to avoid conceding long-range shots.

    The Taifa Stars custodian will be needed to help in buildup-play as well since it will help the entire team to settle. When it comes to goal-kicks, the experienced custodian will have to ensure he does not give the ball away.

  2. Joash Onyango
    Simba SC.

    One of the reasons why the 27-year-old was signed by Simba SC is the continental assignments. Having played for Gor Mahia in Caf competitions, Onyango has massive experience on how to handle different opponents.

    The no-nonsense defender has to clear balls coming his way and deny strikers entry to the danger zone. He will have to ensure Manula is not troubled at the back and his team keeps a clean sheet.

  3. Clatous Chama
    Zambia.

    The Zambia international remains the best in Tanzania football when it comes to creativity in midfield. The 29-year-old needs to keep the midfield intact and ensure they are not outplayed by the opponents.

    Chama will also be required to create chances for the strikers for the Tanzanian outfit to stand a chance of getting a positive outcome away. When one comes his way, he will also be required to be clinical. 

  4. Luis Miquissone
    Simba SC.

    The Mozambique international took no time to settle at the Msimbazi-based side and has since established himself as a key player. His pace on the wing is always a problem to any defender marking him and his crosses are effective often.

    The 25-year-old will also be required to help his full-back especially when the team is under attack. Miquissone has to ensure he helps John Bocco in the 18-yard area for Wekundu wa Msimbazi to stand a chance of scoring.

  5. John Bocco
    Simba SC.

    #5 John Bocco

    The towering Taifa Stars striker has not been at his best of late owing to injuries but on his day, he is unstoppable. The Simba captain will be required to put the opposing defenders on their toes to ensure they do not settle with the ball.

    He will also be required to be clinical in front of the goal since that will put Plateau under pressure. The striker can also encourage his wingers to bring in crosses since he has the height to reach them and create a chance for the teammates.
