Starting XI: Cote d’Or v Sundowns

CAF Champions League

Second Round Qualification, 1st Leg

Teams: Cote d’Or (Seychelles) v Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa)

Date: 14 September 2019

Venue: Stade Linite

Mamelodis Sundowns will be expected to make easy work of Syechelles’ Cote d’Or when the two lock horns in the first leg of their second round CAF Champions League qualification match on Saturday.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 14h00.

Sundowns progressed to this stage after previously beating Otoho d’Oyo 5-2 on aggregate over two legs in the first round of qualification.

Cote d’Or, on the other hand, progressed to this stage on the away goals rule after drawing 3-3 on aggregate over two legs.

Sundowns will have the huge favourites tag heading into the game, but coach Pitso Mosimane is not taking the team from the Seychelles lightly.

“We expect a difficult game,” Mosimane told the club's official website. “On paper we are favourites, but on the pitch it is a different thing.

“We always give respect to the game and who wants it more, and in situations like this it is only us who can suffer because we think on paper we are better.

“But when it comes to the match, football doesn’t care. The match is about playing for the badge and the name.”

This is how they line up.

Sundowns: 30 Pieterse, 2 Madisha, 4 Langerman, 6 Arendse, 7 Lakay, 29 Soumahoro, Mabunda, Jali, 20 Manyisa, 21 Mkhulise, 11 Vilakazi.

Substitutes: 1 Mweene, 5 Lebusa, 10 Sirino, 16 Ngcongca, 18 Zwane, 25 Maboe.
