Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns will depart for Seychelles on Tuesday ahead of their next CAF Champions League tie.
The reigning Absa Premiership champions are the only team from South Africa still involved in Africa's premier club competition, having beating Congolese outfit Otoho d’Oyo 5-2 on aggregate in the preliminary round.
In the final qualifying round, Pitso Mosimane's side will face Seychelles outfit Cote d’Or, with the winner set to advance to the group stage of the competition.
Masandawana will depart for Seychelles on Tuesday in preparation for Saturday's first leg and training will commence on Wednesday, while the squad will be allowed to train at the match venue on Friday.
While Seychelles clubs have never made their mark in continental competitions, Mosimane is leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for the clash, since their early departure will allow his side the maximum opportunity to acclimatise to the conditions.
