AS Vita v Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs take their CAF Champions League campaign to the Democratic Republic of Congo where they will face AS Vita for the first leg of their second-round clash at the Tata Raphael Stadium on Sunday.

Things are falling into place on the domestic front for AmaKhosi as they seem certain to retain their league title with some matches in hand.

They currently enjoy a comfortable six-point lead at the top of the standings with eight matches left in the campaign, which means they can give their CAF ambitions their full attention.

Chiefs will travel without captain and goalkeeping star Itumeleng Khune, who is still recovering an ankle injury.

Young Reyaad Pieterse has looked assured between the posts much the relief of head coach Stuart Baxter, who is already finding it tough tinkering with his squad ahead of a busy schedule.

The South African champions demolished Mozambique outfit Liga Muculmana to progress to this stage, after brushing aside Black Africa from Namibia in the preliminary round.

Meanwhile, their Kinshasa hosts beat Kano Pillars and Dynamos to set up the contest against the Soweto giants.

They qualified for this competition as runners-up of DRC Super Ligue, where they finished behind the country's most decorated club TP Mazembe.
