Sundowns Found Pitch, On Track With CL Prep
Mamelodi Sundowns Are On Track With Training
Mamelodi Sundowns were finally able to find a training pitch yesterday to begin their preparations, after their African rivals opted against organising a venue in Morocco for Head Coach Pitso Mosimane's men.
It was reported on the Soccer Laduma website yesterday, September 20 that Wydad Athletic Club failed to make any arrangements for a training pitch for Sundowns, which delayed the Brazilians' preparations for the second leg of the CAF Champions League quarter-final.
Sundowns will lock horns with Wydad Athletic in this weekend's encounter, after securing a 1-0 win over the Moroccans in the first leg.
A win for Sundowns will see Masandawana book their place in the semi-finals of the competition, which will see the Brazilians possibly remain in North Africa after Saturday's match.
Now, it remains to be seen whether the likes of George Lebese, Khama Billiat and Anthony Laffor will be available for selection after missing out in the first leg due to injury.
Head Coach Mosimane and his charges will be determined to go in all guns blazing on Saturday, as the Brazilians move one step closer to becoming the first South African team to defend their CAF Champions League title.
