Sundowns are the only South African club left in the CAF Champions League and are determined to reach the group stages yet again, with just one more round left before they get to where the competition really starts getting difficult.

After beating Congolese outfit Otoho d’Oyo 5-2 on aggregate in the preliminary round, Pitso Mosimane’s men are now going to face Cote d’Or from Seychelles.

Sundowns have announced that they will leave for Seychelles on Tuesday, to start preparing for the match which will take place next Saturday. They will rest on the day they arrive and start training on Wednesday. On Friday they will train at the match venue, as per CAF rules.

Leaving early for Seychelles will give Sundowns some time to prepare on enemy territory for three days before match day, which is something Mosimane has been doing for years.

Clubs from Seychelles have never been considered a threat in continental club competitions, but Mosimane is clearly not taking the opposition lightly.
