Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is confident his side will proceed to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League after their win over Enyimba.
The Premiership champions defeated the Nigerian giants in their Group B encounter to go top of the standings ahead of Zamalek in second, and Mosimane feels the performance of the Brazilians proved who is the better team.
"Being patriotic as a South African, it's good to beat a Nigerian team," Mosimane said.
"There's always that talk about South African teams not being able to beat Nigerian teams. This talk must stop at this point in time.
"I think we can go to Enyimba and win. I'm not being cocky, I'm being honest."
Mosimane felt the second-half performance was a real test of character and hailed Sundowns' fighting spirit to go on to secure all three points at home.
"The goal we scored was from the training ground. We usually do that. The goal they scored by number 16 (Ojo) is what I've warned them about," he added.
"He scored a goal from the same position in his last game. I told Keagan (Dolly) to stay there but he thought we had won the ball and moved away. But we learn from that.
"The beauty of football. We should always make sure we are not bottom of the log. There are only three teams in the group and two go through."
