SLTV Throwback Thursday: What Pitso Said About Wydad
Mamelodi Sundowns will once again lock horns with Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League competition.
The two sides met last month, prior to the quarter-finals, where the Moroccans finished ahead of Sundowns in group A of the competition.
Now after the Brazilians eliminated Egyptian giants, Al Ahly from the competition, Sundowns will travel away to Morocco next week to face Wydad on their home ground in the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League competition.
Remember what Head Coach Pitso Mosimane said ahead of their encounters with Wydad last time?
“We are buddies hey, we always get this team. They are smart; I am in Morroco all the time. They are not going to come here and show us if they can beat us, they know if you get a point it’s done and when we get there they put 70 thousand people there. In every 12th square metre there is a big drum, we have one or two here and they hit it and that’s where the stress and the pressure comes, it is a sea of red, pressure on us, pressure on the referees,” Mosimane said.
The Brazilians secured a 2-1 victory in their first group fixture against Wydad in January, although suffered a 1-0 defeat away in Morocco.
Do you think Sundowns will be able to eliminate the Moroccans and book their spot in the final of the prestigious CAF Champions League competition?
