Tanzanian champions Simba SC are looking to make history by becoming the first club from East Africa to win the CAF Champions League. They will face South African giants Kaizer Chiefs in their quarterfinal first leg in Johannesburg later on Saturday and their fans are ready to get behind their team.

Simba is one of Tanzania’s most successful clubs but the fans are now hoping to translate their domestic dominance to continental success.

The team has had an excellent campaign so far defeating record nine-time winners and defending champions Al Ahly on their way to finishing top of Group A.

CGTN spoke to some of the club’s fans about the team’s chances of making a first semifinal since 1974 and going all the way to become African champions.
