However, Head Coach Mosimane will need to make some changes to his attacking as the team will be without Percy Tau due to suspension.

“We have played there twice now and have what the experience although it doesn’t make it any easier because teams have gotten tougher. Our intentions are clear, and it is to win the Champions League because it gives us another shot at the club world cup. It is obviously not easy with all the travelling and the daunting schedule, but we are a club with ambitions and this is just one of them,” Mosimane said on CAF’s official website.

“Tau has done well for us this season. He has been consistent ever since being with us and maybe he does need a bit of rest. Would have been great to have him but remember we still have Khama Billiat who has played in that position before and equally capable of doing the job for us,” he added.

@dlaminincamiso9 The match would be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium (Atteridgeville), not Loftus Versfeld (Pretoria). Just a point of correction, #KBY
