Mamelodi Sundowns forward Khama Billiat believes home advantage will be key in their Nedbank Cup Last 16 tie.
The Brazilians will host Golden Arrows in their second Nedbank Cup clash after the draw was conducted on Thursday evening.
The 26-year-old Zibabwean international, who has been missing from action through a hamstring injury, welcomed the outcome of the draw despite missing out on a lower division outfit and believes it can't get easier at this stage of the competition.
“It’s a fair draw,” said Billiat after the draw. ”At this stage of the competition there are no easy games. The clubs in the draw have earned the right and all of them will be tough."
Billiat added: "The good thing is that we have drawn home, and we know that we will always score at home. What we now have to do is make sure we do not concede.”
Details on fixture dates and venues are yet to be released.
Sundowns will be in continental action this weekend when they take on Kampala City Council in their first round second leg clash in Uganda on Saturday (15h00).
