Former defender provides guidance on how Chiefs can beat Wydad

Speaking to te SowetanLIVE, the retired defender has also commended the Naturena-based outfit for their gutsy display in Morocco last weekend. Kubheka said:

“It’s not easy to win away when you play against these North Africans, so Chiefs must be commended. Their defensive game-plan worked perfectly. However, this time around they need a different approach. I think it’s time to go all out and attack.
"From the word go, Chiefs must attack, that can put Wydad under pressure. Defending the away goal could be dangerous. They must aim for two more goals and play without fear. When you defend at home, where will you attack? They must put pressure on them, that will make them panic.’’

Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Wyne Arendse has also shared an advice to the Glamour Boys as to how they can be able to make history. Arendse was part of the Brazilians squad that defied the odds back in 2016 and clinched the lucrative title, beating Egypt’s Zamalek. Arendse told KickOff:

"There is something right that they are doing in the Champions League, that they weren't doing in the league. It will be fantastic for them to go to the final. And in the final they must win it.
"We are all rooting for Chiefs, so they can get that star because they are a team from South Africa that's representing the flag. So, if they can score one at home and keep it clean, they should be home and dry in the final. But then again, it's going be a tough game because Wydad, who know that they've got 90 minutes to win or they are out. It's all or nothing in that 90 minutes."
