According to the Petro Coach, Beto Bianchi, who told Angop, at  4 de Fevereiro International Airport in Luanda, despite these two casualties the group is prepared and with positive thinking in a fight for a good result in the opponent's home.

The fact that Petro de Luanda has been for 12 years without participating in the group stage of the competition, besides being the only Angolan representative in the competitions of the CAF is an extra motivation, he said.

The summoned players who travelled are : Gerson, Nary, Tó Carneiro, Wilson, Carlinhos, Diogenes, Eddie Afonso, Mira, Herenilson, Mateus, Helber, Pedro, Tony, Karanga, Benvindo, Vá and Tiago Azulão.

In order to reach this stage, "Petro de Luanda" eliminated respectively the Botswana Horapa  by 4-0 and 2-, thus  Nyuki of the DRC (wins in both games -1-0 and 1-0) and the Stade Malien of Mali (draw and win 1-1 and 2-1).

This is the third time that Petro have reached the group stage of this club event after the 2004 and 2006 editions, where they did not advance to the quarter-finals.
