Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has played down his sides chances ahead of the CAF Champions League group stage campaign.
The Brazilians were re-instated to the continental showpiece after AS Vita were disqualified for fielding an ineligible player during the qualification phase of the tournament - and have now been grouped with some of Africa's biggest sides.
ES Setif of Algeria, Nigeria's Enyimba and Egyptian side Zamalek make up the group B sides, and all three have previously won the tournament.
Now, as the Premiership champions prepare to face the Algerians in their opener this Saturday - Mosimane has moved to dampen expectations.
"Let Sundowns go and rub shoulders with Zamalek, they have won it maybe four or five times," Mosimane said in his pre-match press conference.
"I am not sure. Let Sundowns rub shoulders with Enyimba, they have won it about four times. Let Sundowns play Setif, they won it year before last year.
"Let's enjoy, let us find out what is happening with these clubs, where are we.
"You guys also like to know where is South African football at this time compared to continental football.
"Let's see, we have a chance again next year. Maybe we can have fun this year and not fear next year. We will say we have learnt our lessons and go for it."
