Zimbabwe national team coach Sunday Chidzambwa is targeting a victory against DRC in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers in Kinshasa on Saturday.
The Warriors are currently on top of Group G with four points while their opponents are second with the same number of points but with a lesser goal difference.
Chidzambwa believes the team needs a win so that there will be no pressure when they play in the reverse fixture three days later.
“The game is very important to us. If we can pull a positive result in DRC, I think will be on the verge of qualifying,” he said.
“Anything shorter than a good result, it means we will have to fight harder in the second leg. Getting a win away will make life easy for us when we play them at home.”
The return fixture is set for Wednesday at National Sports Stadium in the capital.
