Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is confident his
players will do well against USM Alger in the CAF Champions League and have every

Mosimane has revealed that the team will train on Christmas

"We leave on Monday, and on Tuesday we don't train. We
will train on the 25th. We will try maybe do something (for Christmas) with the

Kick-off is at 18:00 (SA time)
