Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his
side go into Saturday's CAF Champions League clash with Al Ahly at Lucas Moripe
Stadium as huge underdogs.
The Brazilians are looking for their first victory over the
Egyptian Giants after having met twice before, in 2001 and 2007 with Al
Ahly coming out victorious on both occasions.
Mosimane said his 2016 CAF Champions League winners are
'small boys' compared to the eight-time champions.
"It's a big club, a very big club," Mosimane told
KickOff website. "It's bigger than Wydad. If you thought Wydad is big... it's
bigger than Esperance. It's huge, team of the century.
"They make transfers of $6 million, can you believe that in
Africa? We sell players for less than that to Europe. They got Ramadan Sobhi from the English Premier League
[Huddersfield], they brought him back. I mean how much do they need to pay?
"They are the biggest team on the continent. Just look at
the badge, just look at the stars. Then you realise that we are small boys, we
have not done nothing.
"But it's okay, we need to try more on the continent and
raise the flag. Pirates led us and gave the country two positions in the
Champions League and two positions in the Confederation Cup.
"We took over from them and now we are giving them a chance
to play in the Champions League without winning the league [domestic] league.
So, we are helping each other, that's how it must be."
Kick-off is at 15:00.
