Mamelodi Sundowns must score away against Wydad Casablanca


Pitso Mosimane has urged Mamelodi Sundowns to break the jinx of not scoring in Morocco and come back with a result against Wydad Casablanca tonight.

The Brazilians meet the Moroccan side in the first leg of their CAF Champions League semifinal at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium (20h00).

Sundowns beat Wydad 2-1 in the group stage match at home before losing 1-0 away in Rabat and The Brazilians are yet to score a goal away from home against the Moroccan side in the past three years.

Mosimane is hoping their fortunes will change this time around, especially starting away from home.

"What is important is to try to score. We haven’t broken that ice, we haven’t scored in Wydad. It's either we get a draw or lose 1-0, so we need to try to score, try to win and even if we don’t win 1-1 will be nice, but try to score away," said Mosimane.

 "I don’t know what the [Wydad] coach's game-plan will be when we start there, but I know what my plan is when we're here [in South Africa]. I told the boys it's been too long guys, we have to score in Wydad, we have to change the fortunes. Hopefully we'll score."
