Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he is expecting a tough home clash against Rayon Sport in the CAF Champions League next weekend.
The Brazilians were held to a goalless draw in Rwanda in the teams’ first-leg clash on Wednesday afternoon, with the East African side putting in a strong performance to suggest they are more than capable of upsetting the 2016 African champions.
Yet Mosimane believes his side will improve their performance for the return game at home in Tshwane on March 18 and has backed them to progress into the group stage.
"We will be playing the same way we played today and hopefully we take the chances,” the ‘Downs coach told Rwandan TV after the match.
When asked if the return leg would be easy, Mosimane replaied: "Easy? No, not easy, but I think we can win at home, yes, but not easy."
