The 2016 CCL champions have been pitted against the Moroccans – who beat them and went on to win the tournament last year – alongside AS Port of Togo and Guinean outfit, Horoya.
Mosimane, now a veteran in CAF competitions, believes that it is a fair draw for his side, admitting that it will be interesting to come up against the team that knocked them out in 2017.
Speaking to CAFOnline.com, ‘Jingles’ said, “It is a fair draw… You can’t ask for less, you can’t ask for more. It is the top 16 and you take whatever comes. With regards to Wydad, both of us are not sure of each other. We beat them at home and they also beat us. They won on penalties and went on to win the title. Both teams want to know who is better. They are the current champions and we have also won it before… It will be interesting to play them.
“Horoya plays good football with great passing technique. They are a good team, tactical and have some good individual players. The team we don’t know much about is AS Port, and we will have to conduct research on them.”
The first game of the groups will take place on the first weekend of May, with Sundowns’ first game pitting them against Wydad on their home turf in Tshwane.
