Mamelodi Sundowns are eager to reclaim their honour following an error-filled CAF Champions League first leg against Maniema Union from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) last week, and advance to the group stage of the competition for a record eighth consecutive time.

They drew 2-2 with Union in their away leg of the second preliminary round in the DRC.Sundowns uncharacteristically gave away their lead twice in the match. Themba Zwane scored in the seventh and 84th minute, while Kitwa Kalowa equalised in the 35th minute and Tenda Mutuila found the net late in the 89th minute.

“It was a moment where I was undecisive. I tried to look back, check forward and make time for our midfielders to open up, but nobody was open,” Lebusa said.As a player, when something like that happens, you [want the] ground to open up and swallow you

Mosa Lebusa“When I tried to kick back to the goalkeeper, I kicked my other foot. As a player, when something like that happens, you [want the] ground to open up and swallow you.”“The game had just started and we had to dig deep from there. I also needed to pick myself up and be bigger than my mistake.”

The Brazilians will bring out the big guns for the match when they welcome Zwane and Rivaldo Coetzee, who were rested in the team’s 1-0 league win over Golden Arrows midweek.Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi suggested that the best possible team would be deployed against Union.

“For this game we have Themba and Rivaldo, who are eligible for selection again. They were rested for the match against Golden Arrows for a few reasons. They will help us and they will add a lot of value,” Mngqithi said on Friday.READ: Mixed bag for SA teams in CAF
