Pitso Mosimane has spoken about the type of Wydad Casablanca side that the team will be welcoming this weekend.
Mamelodi Sundowns will host Wydad Casablanca in their second group A encounter of the CAF Champions League, with Head Coach Mosimane aware that a draw will be enough for their African rivals on the weekend before they are put up to the test when they travel away to Morocco in March.
“They know how to win a match, they know how to get a result here, they know how to get a point here and they always steal a point from us,” Mosimane told the media.
“Last year, they stole a point (because) we made a big mistake.
“They’re smart, you must remember I am in Morocco all the time and I’m with the coaches here.”
Sundowns will lock horns with Wydad on Saturday, January 19.
“They are not going to come here and try and show us if they can beat us, no, they know, if you get a point, it’s done and they know when we get there, they put 70 thousand people there, I think each and every 10-12 square metre there is a big drum, we have one or two here, there’s a big drum and they hit it and that’s where the stress and that’s where pressure comes, it’s a sea of red, pressure on us, pressure on the referees and it becomes difficult.
“But, we make it also tight for them, we play the same way they play so if they beat us it will be 1-0, or sometimes it’s a draw, so, it’s like that, it’s Champions League,” Mosimane added.
