Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has underlined the importance of home matches as the Brazilians set their sights on reaching the knockout stages of the 2018/19 CAF Champions League.
The 2016 champions were drawn in Group A alongside Lobi Stars of Nigeria, Ivory Coast's ASEC Mimosas and Wydad Casablanca from Morocco.
"The most important thing in the Champions League is winning at home...You must also make sure that in the three games away, you at least get two draws," Mosiame told the club's official website.
"If you do that, you're guaranteed qualification in the knockout stage.
"The best thing you can do is to win at home.
Mosimane continued: "We have to win at home. With how our games are structured, we're going to play Wydad in our last match of the group.
"You don't want to get to that match needing to get a result. You have to do what you need to do as early as possible.
"You've got to have a good start and hit the ground running with your home games."
