ZAMBIA Super League side Green Eagles have left for Burundi ahead of the CAF Confederation Cup fixture against Musongati FC Gitega.
The Kawale Boys left yesterday morning aboard a chartered Zambia Air Force cargo plane.
The match will take place this weekend at the Stade Ingoma in Gitega before squaring off in the return leg which is set for Independence Stadium in Choma on December 4th.
The Zambia National Service sponsored side held an evening training session last at Barca Academy in Lusaka before leaving for Burundi to face Musongati FC in the CAF Confederation preliminary rounds.
The two teams are high on morale as both are coming from recording victories in their domestic leagues. Green Eagles edged Kitwe United 1-0 in Choma while Musongati recorded an emphatic 3-0 win over Muzinga FC away from home.

The Aggrey Chiyangi coached outfit will be looking to go beyond the playoff stage they reached last season when they were eliminated by Moroccan side Hassania Union Sport d’Agadir 3-2 on aggregate.
Chiyangi will be banking on Anos Tembo together with the experienced Lineker Mwiikisa to get him the goals with Amity Shamende and Gozon Mutale as the creative minds following the departure of Spencer Sautu who joined Power Dynamos.
