- The Sundowns coach said they will have to score in Pretoria to get into the semi-finals
- Mosimane's statements followed the Brazilians losing 2-0 to Al Ahly in Cairo
The Mamelodi Sundowns suffered a 2-0 loss against Al Ahly in Cairo and it's threatening their chances of making the CAF Champions League semi-finals.
The Brazilians still have an opportunity to redeem themselves, however, KickOff reported they will need at least three goals when taking on Al Ahly on home turf.
Pitso Mosimane has since opened up about his team's loss in Cairo and the upcoming game in Pretoria.
The Sundowns coach said he believed his team performed well but two goals against them made it a near-impossible situation to turn around.
He was quoted saying:
"But we have to turn the volume up in Pretoria. We have to. We don't have any other option, we have to score in Pretoria."
Mosimane then congratulated their rivals and praised them for being a "good" and "big" team.
"Congratulations to Al Ahly, they are good team, they are a big team. There was a lot of pressure but we managed to deal with the pressure."
