Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes the CAF Champions League clash against Wydad Athletic Club will be decided by small margins.

The Brazilians are in Casablanca, Morocco for the encounter and have already had two training sessions under floodlights to help them prepare for Saturday's game.

Mosimane's charges were warmly greeted at the airport upon their arrival in Morocco but he expects a tough opponent at Stade Mohammed V.

"We received a warm reception and I am humbled that myself and the team are well received in this area," said Mosimane, as quoted by the club's official website.

"We had our first session last night, the pitch wasn't the best but the best in that space.

"This isn't going to be a game of many chances, you must take opportunities, it's a game of small margins and that might be your only opportunity in the game."

Sundowns are top of Group C after winning their opening game 3-0 at home against Petro de Luanda.

Kick-off is at 21:00.
