Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns left-back Tebogo Langerman admits their remaining league matches aren't easy, but insists the team is ready to defend their Premiership title.

Currently sitting fifth in the table with 34 points from 17 matches, Sundowns have games in hand over title contenders Cape Town City, Bidvest Wits, SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs.

Coming off a hard-fought CAF Champions League 3-2 aggregate victory over Ugandan side Kampala Capital City Authority, the Brazilians resume domestic duties by locking horns with Chiefs in a highly-anticipated league encounter at FNB Stadium on April 1.

"I think all our remaining league games are the tough ones, because some of the teams we will be up against are the league title contenders, like Chiefs, SuperSport and Wits," Langerman told Vodacom Soccer.

"And if you look at the teams like Arrows, Maritzburg, Pirates and Platinum Stars, they are fighting for a top-eight finish, while the likes of Baroka, Highlands Park, Free State (Stars) are fighting relegation.

"So, there are no easy games at all for us despite of our advantage of games in hand over fellow title contenders. But we are ready to battle it out until to the bitter end, because we have to defend our league title at all costs.

"There is no doubt that sparks will fly in our game against Chiefs. Beside the fact that it will be a game of the title contenders, but there is a lot at stake whenever these two teams clash," added Langerman, whose side beat Amakhosi 2-1 in the reverse fixture last November.
