- The Mamelodi Sundowns have to look forward and not dwell on the past after a disappointing ABSA Premiership game
- The Sundowns must focus on taking maximum points in their next encounter in the Caf Champions Leauge
- They face off against USM Alger on Saturday
The Mamelodi Sundowns do not have the luxury to examine the reasons for their poor performance in the ABSA Premiership League after drawing with Bidwest Vits.
Briefly.co.za learned that instead, they have to immediately shift their attention to the Caf Champions League.
Coach Pitso “Jingles” Mosimane was visibly frustrated after watching his team achieve a 0-0 score against a 10-man team at Loftus Versfeld.
The Sundowns will face USM Alger in Tshwane on Saturday and a victory against them would seal their spot in the quarter-finals.
USM Alger has been beaten by the Downs before and that was an away game, this places the Brazilians in an excellent position according to the dailysun.co.za.
The Sundowns are currently leading the Group C log with 7 points from 3 matches, giving them a 2 point lead over the second-place Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca.
“It’s a big game. It’s an important game for us. We must beat the Algerians here at the weekend. If we win, we will be guaranteed a place in the knockout stages. We want to get to 10 points and our only focus will be to fight for the top of the log.
“We have to win the group to avoid the other big teams in the other groups. Finishing at the top of our group has its own advantages and we would like to capitalise on that. The plan is to win all over home game to ease the pressure on the team.” Mosimane stressed.
