Okara upbeat ahead TP Mazembe clash

Bayelsa Queens coach, Domo Okara is confident his side will bounce back against TP Mazembe of Congo, in their second group game of the 2022 CAF Women’s Champions League in Morocco.

The Prosperity Girls will take on the Congolese on Thursday (today), as they look to get their maiden campaign back on track.

The Congolese club are second in the group after a 1-0 win over Wadi Degla Women of Egypt in their first game while Bayelsa Queens are without any point.

Okara said the failure to convert goalscoring opportunities cost them so much against Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies of South Africa on Monday.

The Nigerian side lost 1-2 to the South Africans at the Grande Stade de Marrakech in Morocco in their opening game.

“The South African team is a good team. Tactically, they are very sound. Though we threw away our chances in the first 20 minutes, we should have wrapped up the game, maybe leading by two or three goals.

“But we failed to do so and that is football. Football is a game of chance,” he said.

The coach, however, assured that his team would come back stronger.

“What we are going to do next is to come back strong in the other two games, so that we can qualify from the group,” he said.

“We will ensure we get the maximum points from the next game.”

The match will kick off by 8pm Nigerian time at the Grande Stade de Marrakech.
