Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to conclude a successful CAF Champions League group stage campaign with a win against Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca on Saturday afternoon.
Wydad’s win against USM Algers last week Friday saw them join The Brazilians as the second team to qualify for the knockout stages from the tough Group C. With top spot in the group still up for grabs Downs know that a win or a draw against the visitors in on Saturday will see them finish as group winners.
The Moroccan outfit have become familiar foes for The Brazilians, having met on five occasions in 2019 alone, with the most recent meeting coming in the group stage clash in December 2019, played in Casablanca, which ended in a 0-0 stalemate.
Downs will be optimistic as they go into the tie with a favourable home record against the Moroccans, with two wins and two draws in the previous games played on home soil.
Both sides are also chasing domestic silverware with Wydad sitting on top of their domestic league after 13 games played. Sundowns currently sit 2nd in the Absa Premiership as they continue to aim to close the gap to the top.
Mamelodi Sundowns take on Wydad Casablanca at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Kick-off is at 15:00.
