Pitso: We Have To Turn The Volume Up In Pretoria

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has admitted that overturning the 2-0 deficit in the second leg of their CAF Champions League quarter-final clash against Al Ahly will be a tough ask, but his men will be up to the challenge.

The Brazilians host the Egyptian giants on Saturday afternoon at the Lucas Moripe Stadium eager to reverse the defeat in Cairo at the weekend.

Al Ahly scored their two goals in the second half, one of them from the penalty spot, thanks to left back Ali Maaloul.

“We played well and I am okay, it’s just that two goals is a bit difficult for us to turn the results around. But we have to turn the volume up in Pretoria, we don’t have an option. We have to score in Pretoria,” Mosimane said after the game.  

The coach then warned the opposition that Downs will be harder to beat in their own backyard as well, something the Egyptians know all too well having suffered a 5-0 thumping at Lucas Moripe Stadium at the same stage of the competition last year.

“But congratulations to Al Ahly, they are a big team, they put pressure, but we managed to deal with the pressure. Have you been there? Okay, come to Pretoria. It’s a different story. It’s not what you see here. Ask USM and ask Wydad – it’s a different story, totally what is not here. And I can’t explain it,” Mosimane said.
