Onyango: When A Team Sits Back It Becomes Difficult For Us

Mamelodi Sundowns’ Approach For Their CAF Champions League Match

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 07, 2018 01:03 PM

Mamelodi Sundowns are expecting an open game where both teams come at each other when they face off against Rayon Sports later today.

Sundowns will take on the Rwandan team in their CAF Champions League match at the Stade Amahoro in Kigali this evening.

Denis Onyango has explained how Pitso Mosimane’s charges will approach the game. 

“We’ll go all out because we don’t want to have the hassle in Pretoria. We saw the last time where we struggled in all our home games, and we did well in away games in the group stages,” said the goalkeeper.  

“We want to do well away, and also make it easy for ourselves at home, because there is a lot of pressure at home when you don’t have positive results. We’ll do our best to get positive results from Rwanda and make it easy for ourselves in the return leg,” he added. 

The shot-stopper says they have studied video analysis of their opponents.  

“They are a very good team going forward with a lot of big boys. They’ve also got foreigners from Cameroon and Burundi. So, it’s a team that looks to play very good football from the back.

“We are also good going forward and defending. We’ll do our best not to concede because in Champions League it’s very important not to concede, but it’s very important to also score away so that it gives you an edge. We’re looking at all those aspects and using the experience we have seen before in the Champions League to try and wrap up the game as soon as we can,” said the 32-year-old.

“I haven’t seen a lot of African Champions League games where people sit back and park the bus. Everyone plays to win. That’s an advantage for us because we love playing football. When a team sits back it becomes a little bit difficult for us, and for them as well, because it becomes a two-sided game. So for us, we just want to play the game. Hopefully, we’ll get positive results and move to the next stage,” concluded the Ugandan.  

The match gets underway at 18:00 this evening.
