The Central African outfit goes into the second-leg with a 2-1 advantage, meaning Masandawana will need to overturn that deficit if they are to advance to the next round of group stage qualifying.
The former Ajax Cape Town captain, who has played every minute for Sundowns so far this season, insists that there is no panic ahead of the clash taking place at the Lucas Moripe Stadium as he believes his side is more than capable of outclassing Otoho.
“It was difficult but I think we have ourselves to blame, we could have done better. We could have scored goals and we could have prevented them from scoring,” said Lebusa as he reflected on the first leg defeat that took place over two weeks ago.
“They scored and we are in this situation but we are Sundowns and we always find a way. With the quality that we have I think they will stand no chance against us.”
The 26-year-old has complained about the level of officiating on the continent, particularly in the first leg when they saw their captain Hlompho Kekana being shown a straight red card and will have to watch Saturday’s clash from the stands.
“In my opinion the officials were not fair (on us) but I can’t dwell much on that, I am a player. If I feel like if the referee is unfair there is nothing I can do, I just need to play. Hopefully in the second leg the referee will be much better. At the end of the day we can’t just blame one person maybe you have to look at yourself and say ‘maybe there is something that you could have done better to prevent that’.”
