Rhulani: Mazembe desperate for points

CAF Champions League

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena has provided some insight into what his team will face when they take on TP Mazembe.

Sundowns left the country on Wednesday for their next CAF Champions League match in DR Congo on Saturday beaming with confidence after beating CR Belouizdad 5-1 in their previous match in Tanzania.

The Brazilians remain unbeaten in the Champions League this season and are currently sitting on top of Group B with six points.

Mokwena has revealed the club's technical team has already watched the last three games Mazembe have played, including a derby in Congo.

"Interesting team, very good team, defensively very strong," said Mokwena soon after the team's arrival in Lubumbashi.

"We have watched their last three games, they played the derby and played both [games against] Al Hilal. So in relation to what we have seen, it's a 4-4-1-1 but it's going to be interesting because we still have to tactically activate ourselves and make sure that we are ready for a team that have got complex personalities and are very aggressive.

"They push wings and full-backs very high but can also be conservative and sitting in a block and play on a counter, because they have fast players up front. It's going to be interesting to see what sort of personalities they adopt because they need the three points more than us."
