Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, previously revealed how the Brazilians could approach the encounter this evening and Soccer Laduma takes a look at the players making their return to the squad.
“I don’t think that Wydad will give you an opportunity for an all-out attack,” Mosimane said last weekend on Sundowns’ official website.
Sundown previously confirmed their travelling squad to face Wydad Casablanca this evening, with the likes of George Lebese and new signings, Toni Silva, Mosa Lebusa, Reyaad Pieterse and Lyle Lakay all absent from the squad.
Indications are that Sundowns won’t make too many changes from the team that secured a win over AS Togo Port on July 27.
Ricardo Nascimento could make his return to the set-up after he was rested for precaution in the Brazilians' previous MTN8 encounter.
Sundowns could also look to bring Tebogo Langerman back into the set-up as Lakay has not travelled with Brazilians, with the player currently cup-tied.
Oupa Manyisa, who was rested in the Brazilians' previous MTN8 clash, Andile Jali and Anthony Laffor have also travelled with the Brazilians to Morocco with indications that the trio are fit and available for selection.
Both Jali and Laffor were previously out of action for Sundowns due to injury.
Sundowns' new signing, Lebohang Maboe, also made the trip, with the player having been signed in time for the CAF registration deadline and it remains to be seen whether the 23-year-old will make his CAF Champions League debut this evening.
