Mamelodi Sundowns have put their rivalry on hold with SuperSport United as both Tshwane clubs aim to fly the South Africa flag high on the continent this weekend.
Sundowns on Saturday face Morocco's Wydad Casablanca in Rabat in the second leg of the CAF Champions League quarter-finals. Pitso Mosimane's side won the first duel 1-0 at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
SuperSport, who left for Ndola this morning, are also in action tomorrow as they revive hostilities with Zambian outfit Zesco United in the last-eight of the Confederation Cup at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. Eric Tinkler's charges were held to a goalless draw on home soil last week.
Kekana, who helped Downs win Africa's premier club competition last term, insists the Brazilians are behind their neighbours on this occasion.
"I just want to wish Matsatsantsa the best of luck when they face Zesco, Tshwane rea tshwana (we are the same)," said the Brazilians skipper in a video message uploaded by Masandawana on Twitter.
