Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is optimistic that his side can advance to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League, where he hopes to face Wydad Casablanca.

Wydad are the reigning African champions and beat Sundowns 1-0 in their group game in Morocco last Friday.

The Brazilians are in third spot in Group C and will need to beat Guinea's Horoya in their next encounter on August 28 to have a chance to progress.

Mosimane told reporters: "We will win against Horoya. We will win. We will meet again with Wydad, hopefully in the semi-finals. I like to come here.

"Let's see what will happen. But in South Africa we win.

"The chances to reach the knockout stage are 50/50. All we have to do is win our last match at home. We win our last match, we qualify. We're playing at home, when we are playing at home we are strong.

"Even here we were strong. We played Wydad in South Africa and we put them under pressure for most of the match. We dominated Wydad in South Africa, so we have to win at home. If you don't win, you're out."
