Team manager Nyika Chifamba said their players felt more comfortable at Rufaro than at the giant National Sports Stadium hence the club’s decision to move to the stadium it had initially abandoned because of the huge deductions by the City of Harare.
Chifamba said Rufaro was also easily accessible to their supporters. He said they needed a huge crowd to cheer them to victory after losing their first two matches of the Caf Champions.
He, however, asked for patience from his team’s supporters saying the fans should accept the outcome of the game.
Last Tuesday, Dynamos supporters went on a rampage throwing missiles threatening to beat up coach Elvis Chiweshe after their team were held to a draw by lowly Kiglon. The fans were blaming Chiweshe for the team’s poor performance.
The match came hard on the heels of defeats to Motor Action and Esperance causing problems in the team’s camp.
Dynamos is the only team in its group with no points and no goals, having lost both their matches 2-0 to Mazembe and 1-0 to Esperance. Esperance have six points, Mazembe have four, Entente Setief have one.
The former Zimbabwe champions need to win against the Algerians to remain with a realistic chance of quualifying for the semi finals.
