Mosimane expects a ‘tougher’ Champions League 2nd leg

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he is expecting a tougher battle in the second leg of their CAF Champions League clash against Rayon Sports.

Sundowns were forced to settle for a goalless draw in the first leg at the Amahoro Stadium in Kigali, Rwanda, on Wednesday, March 7.

“It was tough even here [Rwanda]. Football is like that. It’s tough, Mosimane told the club’s official website.

“But I don’t know how Rayon Sports play away. I am happy that we didn’t sit back. We came here to play. We don’t sit at the back. We always go forward to play, even if we play away.

“It’s our culture because if you sit at the back you invite pressure and the goal will come. It was a tough game. I like the atmosphere. The fans were good, peaceful and no issues.

“It was a nice environment and I am happy that we kept a clean sheet.”

Sundowns will host the return leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday, March 18, with kick off set for 7pm.
