Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes his side’s dominance over Zesco United in recent friendlies will not affect the results in Saturday’s match.

Sundowns touched down in Zambia on Thursday at the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe Airport on a chartered flight to face Zesco United in their Caf Champions League semifinal at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The Brazilians beat Zesco in their last three meetings in friendly matches, Mosimane is expecting a competitive clash against the Zambian club and believes the best club will win on the day.

“It is a different game totally. Friendly games don’t matter, this one is an official match,” Mosimane told Lusakatime.com

“What matters more is coming here to try and get a result and hopefully score.”

“We respect Zesco, we respect their coach, he is a big coach, and a national team coach, and they have a very good team,” Mosimane said.

“You cannot be lucky winning all your home games, they have reached the semifinals by winning all their home games except against Wydad Casablanca (1-1).

“We know who they are, we know very well the team we are playing against.”
