The Brazilians are involved in what is becoming an increasingly more interesting title battle, having closed the gap to Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the table to just eight points with a game in hand.

The club take on Mpumalanga Black Aces in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday and Zwane has stressed there is no time to be disappointed about their CAF Champions League exit.

Sundowns were knocked out of Africa's premier club competition 3-2 on aggregate by TP Mazembe.

"We are obviously disappointed by our Champions League exit, but we can't dwell on that too much because there is still a lot of work ahead of us," Zwane told the club's official website.

"The league becomes very important for us now because we definitely want to go back to Africa in the coming season. There is a lot to be learned in Africa.

"There's a few matches to go and we have to go all out in search of three points in every remaining League match. The rest will sort itself out because right now that's all that is in our control.

"Having experienced players in our squad is very important at this stage because if you keep your head in the sand for too long you might even end up missing all the remaining opportunities to finish well this season.

"I mean there's still the League and the Nedbank Cup left to play for, which means Sundowns still have a chance to finish better than last season."
