Acid test

 Its almost February 2011 and almost time for Kenyan clubs to set off and attempt, one again to knock over the last frontier of Club football on the African continent.

Ulinzi Stars will be  representing Kenya in the Champions League. The opponents Egyptian powerhouse team Zamalek FC. They host the first leg at Nyayo Stadium on Saturday. This being the first opportunity Ulinzi have had to play in Continental Club Competition in 6 years. 

Sofapaka  on the other hand are in Angola to face Aviacao on the first leag of their maiden CAF Confederations Cup. The big spending ‘Batoto ba Mungu’ have invested in plenty of experience for this one (stalwarts such as Titus Mulama) signed during the off season to bolster their midfield attacking options. However the real test is whether last season’s big signings have finally gelled into the kind of frce that a lijne up with 9 Kenyan internationals can be.

On thye whole this blogger expects that these games will be really tugh going for bth our teams so I am hoping that Sofapaka can get a draw away and Ulinzi on the other hand can keep the away gals to a minimum. 0-0 wuld be Okay but  a win would be great.
