Pitso purring after reaching semis

CAF Champions League

An own-goal by Ali Gabr which was Percy Tau’s making proved the difference on the night, but The Brazilians were all over their opponents and could have increased the scoreline.

“We could have scored more, we ended up enjoying the game more than trying to score but it’s also good to enjoy the game, to have confidence on the ball and they dominated,” Mosimane said on SuperSport.

“Percy is always a game-changer, but I’m happy with Teko tonight, most especially when they didn’t press us on the ball and then he’ll spread all the passes, very good.

“We got what we wanted, we got the three points, we dominated the game, and by the way we played Zamalek hey, so it’s good.”

Mosimane thanked the Downs fans who came out to support at a freezing-cold Lucas Moripe Stadium.

“It’s good, they are here, they are supporting us, they are brave, chilly weather but they are okay, so it’s good, we just have a good momentum.

“We only wish, one day, we could just fill the stadium … maybe they need more wins!” he joked.

Wydad Casablanca lead Group A on goal-difference to Zesco United after the Moroccans lost 1-0 at home against Al Ahly on Wednesday night. Zesco are also on seven points after they secured a 1-1 draw at ASEC Mimosas. ASEC and Ahly both have four points after four matches.
