Cape Town - Themba Zwane has revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns have done their homework on CAF Champions League opponents Zamalek.

The Brazilians will face the Egyptian giants at the Cairo International Stadium on Sunday.

Sundowns have been in scintillating form in the tournament after wins over ES Setif (which was rescinded) and Enyimba.

"There are three teams in the group now and two must qualify. Already we have three points so this also puts us under pressure to win the game against Zamalek," Zwane told KickOff.

"We've watched them before and some of the games they've played. The only thing we saw is that they move the ball quickly and they are good in set-pieces... and they press.

"We have a plan for them. We must also avoid corners and don't give them set-pieces."

Kick-off is at 23:05 (SA time).
