Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie believes the club won't have any problems beating Equatorial Guinea's Leones Vegetarianos in Wednesday's CAF Champions League Preliminary Round second leg tie at Loftus Stadium.

Sundowns go into the second leg holding a 2-0 lead having beaten the minnows in the first leg at the Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin last Wednesday.

As such Brockie, who scored in the first leg, takes the view that the match against Vegetarianos is essentially a dead-rubber.

The New Zealand international said: "We actually did not do any video footage on them, we had nothing on them.

"Sometimes, in a way, it can work well because you can't take your opponent lightly and you've got to go out there and put in a professional performance and that's what we did.

"The boys worked hard in testing conditions and I don't think we will have any problems with them at home, and we will get into the next qualifying round."

The 31-year-old appears likely to start in the encounter as it seems he is returning to the type of prolific form he showed in his SuperSport United days.

The forward has managed two goals this season with his first league strike coming for the Brazilians in a 3-1 victory over Free State Stars on November 7.
