Cape Town - SuperSport United forward Bradley Grobler says the club are fully prepared for a tough mental encounter in the semi-final of the CAF Confederation Cup against Club Africain.

Matsatsansa faces up against the African giants from Tunisia at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday after beating ZESCO United 2-2 on the away goals rule in the previous round.

While defeating the Zambians on their own turf proved to be a gruelling encounter, the physicality and mental battle with the North African sides will test Eric Tinkler's side with a tactical battle uncommon to the South African top-flight.

"Tunisians will always try to get into your head and put you off your game. Already we know what to expect. They will throw all kinds of curveballs at us," the 29-year-old told SowetanLIVE.

"The boys will need to keep their cool and remain calm if they try any tricks.

"We have a good squad, we have players who can come into the game and compete. Our team is fortunate to have players with international experience."

Kick off is at 15:00.
