Downs Aim For CL Group Stages Entry

A Champions League group stages entry beckons for Mamelodi Sundowns on Friday night, pending another victory over Cote d’Or FC.

The Brazilians host the outfit from Seychelles at the Lucas Moripe Stadium with a healthy 5-0 lead from the first leg of the first round tie away two weeks ago and coach Pitso Mosimane will be looking on to see his team finish the job.

It is for this reason that the coach has said he wants more goals and will field the strongest team available to him even though Sundowns has been hit by injuries.

Our captain Hlompho Kekana is also still serving suspension.

“I need goals, and I need the team to gain confidence,” Mosimane said as he looks ahead to tonight’s match.

“You could see us against Maritzburg, we were not really ourselves. So we need the confidence. I need my principles and to do things the way I always tell them, those things must come out. The resistance against our opponents won’t be very big. I will probably play the same team and let them score goals. We have enough ammunition.”

Sundowns were semifinalists in the previous edition of the Champions League after being knocked out by on aggregate by Wydad Casablanca.

Mosimane is determined to go all the way having won the continental title before back in 2016. The group stages is a big first step towards that target.
