Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, is confident ahead of the South African club's tricky first leg encounter against the Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
Mosimane spoke to Caf's official website about their preparations.
“Our journey to reaching this stage of the competition hasn’t been easy. We have become the team to beat this time around, purely based on the fact that we are the defending champions. Unlike last season, we didn’t have the champions title next to our name, but now clubs have studied our strengths and are now are planning better against us. That is what comes with being a champion,” said Mosimane.
