Despite sitting seven points behind Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane admitted they are play for 'pride'.
Sundowns moved to within seven points of the AmaKhosi with a 2-1 victory over Tshwane rivals SuperSport United on Sunday afternoon.
There's still plenty of football to be played this season, but Mosimane insists he charges are targeting a CAF Champions League spot, whether it's first or second.
"Ja, we're just playing for our pride, we're playing for [CAF] Champions League spot, whether is the first spot or second spot.
"Kaizer Chiefs is on honeymoon hey, I mean so many wins we have to accept and leave them to go there.
"What's important for us is the bragging rights on Tshwane derby and we corrected that. We always win this game, no doubt about that. Okay, in the MTN8 they were much better but we controlled the game. They played three midfielders but we still managed to put four, because I bring my wingers inside.
"We controlled the game, 'AJ and 'Keke' were good. But the mistake that 'AJ' made it happens, you pay school feels, if you want to build from the back you gonna pay schol feels. [Motjeka] Madisha made another mistake there, but otherwise we play like SuperSport, from Clayton Daniels to Gabuza, you can do that, long one, long one and when you defend the headers well there's no problem.
"You close the sides on SuperSport, there's no problem. Close the sides for a cross and that ball, you know that ball, Grobler, as long as is up there and we have people to bring it back, there's no problem."
