Heart of Lions have a difficult job at hand as they attempt to progress to the next stage of the Caf Champions League after a stuttering start.

In a fortnight, Lions will have to overturn a deficit when they host Etoile Filante after going down 0-2 on Saturday in Ouagadougou in the preliminary qualifying round.

Lions, making their debut conceded the first goal in the 24th minute before the Burkinabe side doubled their lead with two minutes of play remaining.

With their job well cut out, Lions will have to win by three goals to nil in the return leg to progress to the next stage of the competition.

Saturday’s game was the Kpando-based side’s maiden continental match.
