Mosimane admits that it has been difficult juggling Sundowns’ domestic and continental commitments.

“I have taken some risks with how we manage our squad. I have been resting Themba Zwane, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Hlompho Kekana because they are Bafana Bafana players,” Mosimane told the club’s website.

“They have played a lot of football and they have travelled a lot. We also rested Jeremy Brockie who played in the Caf Confederation Cup. You saw how Vilakazi lifted us when he came on against SuperSport United after being rested.

“Zwane and Kekana are fresh. We rested Tiyani Mabunda against SuperSport United. It’s risky but we have to juggle the team to make sure that in the final last five games we have legs and fresh legs. Bafana players know how to play in the continent.

Vilakazi, Zwane, Kekana and Mabunda are the big guns who have played in the continent and most of them were there when we won the Champions League. This is the time to bring them on now because we sacrificed them in the league to ensure that they are fresh. It’s risky but we can afford them,” added Mosimane.

Sundowns will host Rayon Sports in the return leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on March 18.

The winner of this tie will qualify for the group stage.
