Mamelodi Sundowns will face CR Belouizdad in the last game of the CAF Champions League group stages tomorrow at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. Masandawana are currently on top of the log standings with thirteen points after five games without suffering a defeat. The last meeting between the two sides saw the Brazilians record a 5-1 victory in a game that was played in a neutral venue in Tanzania.
“We have gone through a very good patch, we have played five games, they had a good result against TP Mazembe and they have lost one and drawn two. CR Belouizdad is an interesting match, we are serious people and we try to set the tone as the technical team. They are a very good team, well-coached with very interesting schemes, especially with their fullbacks. Let’s see what happens on the day of the game.” said Coach Rulani Mokwena.
Masandawana have already qualified for the last eight after winning four games and drawing one.
“From a psychological perspective, we want to make sure we get to the knockout stages on a good winning momentum, so that we have the convictions that we can win in Africa and that is important. When you get to the knockout stages there are no second chances.”
The Brazilians have been free-scoring in this year’s competition, they have ten goals to their name and are one of the top-scoring teams. There are only two teams with thirteen points going into the last game of the group stages.
The game kicks off at 15:00 and will be broadcasted on SABC and the Mamelodi Sundowns Facebook.
