Pitso Mosimane admits that their upcoming Absa Premiership fixture is ‘a thorn in the flesh’ as they prepare for their next CAF Champions League fixture.
Mamelodi Sundowns will travel away in the first round of the CAF Champions League, coming up against Al-Ahly Bhengazi in a two-legged fixture.
The Brazilians will once again face challenges with finding time to travel, as their fixture against Al-Ahly Bhengazi could likely be moved to another country other than Libya.
However, before they continue on their journey in the CAF Champions League on the weekend of the 14-16 December, Sundowns still need to come up against Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership next week.
“That’s our next trip. It’s not an easy one because we have a thorn in the flesh, which is the Baroka game in midweek. You ask yourself when we are going to travel? If we can find a flight, we must travel the same night after the Baroka match so that at least you’re in Cairo the next day,” Mosimane said on Sundowns’ official website.
“It’s not going to be easy. They (Al-Ahly Bhengazi) also won’t have a midweek game like us. They are relaxed and are waiting for us. We have to do what we have to do, try and get a decent result away from home and not put ourselves under pressure to do everything at home, but hopefully we finish it here,” he added.
