Sibusiso ‘Vila’ Vilakazi has spoken about the importance of using Mamelodi Sundowns’ home ground advantage when the Tshwane giants take on Esperance Tunis today, Friday 02.
Vilakazi helped Masandawana to their first CAF Champions League group encounter last week, May 24, when he got on the scoresheet during the Brazilians 3-1 victory over AS Vita Club.
Now, Sundowns will welcome Tunisian-side, Esperance to the Loftus Versfeld Stadium today, June 02, in another CAF Champions League group C showdown and speaking to Sundowns’ official website, Vila is confident that his side has prepared well and will be able to do the job for the country.
“Our campaign so far has been fairly ok, as we have been able to get four points from our two games,” Vilakazi said on Sundowns’ official website.
“This game will be crucial for us. It is important that we use our home ground advantage, and we have prepared well for the outing. Everyone is ready, and anyone selected to play can do the job for the team, fans and country.”
“Esperance is a big team, and have a great history in continental contests, and have been dominant, so it is not going to be easy. But we know we are capable of getting all three points. All the players are craving to get to the top and remain there until the end of the round,” he added.
