The Brazilians are currently leading Group C with seven points after three games and a win over Alger at Loftus Stadium on Saturday could put them through to the quarterfinals of the continental tournament.

"It's up to the coach because I only started to train this week. So it's up to the coach to select me or not," said Lebusa at the Nedbank Cup draw.

"But I feel the other guys that have been playing have been doing well and didn't concede a goal, and it's good to keep the momentum."

Mauricio Affonso, Gaston Sirino and Jose Ali Meza are some of the other key players that are nursing injuries at Chloorkop.
