Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane gives his thoughts on their CAF Champions League group – News

The Brazilians will begin their group campaign away to Stars on the weekend of January 11-13, hoping to get off to a good start with three points. 

“We got Wydad again, for a third time in a row. It’s good to play Wydad again because all our games with them are tight. There’s no team that’s scored two goals. In some instances penalties separate the two teams. It’s a good draw. We know where we stay when we play Wydad. The challenge of going to Wydad is the flying because there are no direct flights to Casablanca. It’s either you go via Europe, Accra or Senegal, ” he said. 

Sundowns will play ASEC in back-to-back matches in February. Their away match against the Ivorians will be on artificial turf, so Mosimane says they will need to be ready for this. 

“We haven’t played Asec in the past. They’re Soumahoro Bangaly and [Yannick] Zakri’s former team. We got the two players from them which shows that they’re a good team. They play on an artificial pitch. We can’t complain about that because we have played on an artificial pitch before. They’re a tricky team to play away. They’re technical and physical. Even though they’re difficult away, you’ve got to win at home. In my opinion, we can get four points out of Asec.”
