Former Orlando Pirates defender, Edward Motale, believes that the Brazilians can win the CAF Champions League and has explained exactly what they need to do.
Motale, who won the tournament with Pirates in 1995, has shown confidence in Pitso Mosimane’s side, who are currently on top of their group - above Egyptian giants, Zamalek and Nigerian club, Enyimba.
“I think Sundowns have what it takes to win it (the CAF Champions League),” he stated in an interview with Soccer Laduma.
Motale believes that Sundowns’ performances away from home are ultimately what will prove to be the difference between lifting the trophy and going home empty handed.
“if they win away, you have an advantage, because at home it’s easy,” he continued. “It’s easy because, when you play at home, it’s just that you don’t have to concede.
“It can either be 0-0 or a win. There are two things you need to do to win this trophy. Away, you need to make sure you win or you draw. But at home, you must just make sure you don’t concede,” the 49-year-old concluded.
