Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns have been warned that their final CAF Champions League Group B clash with Enyimba in Nigeria on Tuesday could be 'hell'.

The Brazilians have already qualified for the semi-finals of the competition, however, fortunes have not been as favourable for Enyimba.

The Aba Warriors cannot reach the final stages but are reportedly eager to give Downs a tough game and hostile reception in Port Harcourt.

Enyimba's official website has gone so far as to to issue a rallying cry to the club's supporters ahead of the game, saying: "Our campaign may be over but we have one final shot to exit with a bang. We host Sundowns on Tuesday and you can be the difference..."

Meanwhile, prominent South Africa-based Nigerian agent, Mohammed Lawal, asserts that Pitso Mosimane's men must expect it to be 'hell' inside the Amiesimaka Stadium on Tuesday.

He told Soccer Laduma: "The fans and the atmosphere are intimidating, plus Enyimba are not happy with how Sundowns watered the pitch in Pretoria a few minutes before the game started. There will be nothing friendly about this game, with Enyimba needing to protect their pride. It will be hell!"
