AmaZulu will be looking to avoid defeat in their CAF Champions League Group B clash away to Algerian side ES Setif on Saturday as they look for an historic quarter-final spot.
The two sides will meet again following Usuthu’s 1-0 win courtesy of winger Luvuyo Memela in their earlier fixture in Durban last month.
Will the focus this week naturally on the blockbuster Mamelodi Sundowns v Al Ahly match earlier in the day, AmaZulu have largely flown under the radar.
AmaZulu have played seven CAF Champions League fixtures this season including the preliminary playoffs, winning three matches, drawing twice and losing twice.
ES Setif currently trail AmaZulu by three points and a victory will see them go level on points ahead of the last two group matches.
Usuthu have lost only once in three away fixtures in the CAF Champions League ahead of their Algerian encounter, losing only to group leaders Raja Casablanca in Morocco.
Only the top two teams in each of the four groups will progress to the quarter-finals.
The two teams clash on Saturday at the Stade du 5 Juillet in Algiers in Algeria.
The kick-off is at 21:00 SA time.
