BSNSports culled Match preview of Mamelodi Sundowns vs Lobi Stars.
Sundowns can make their path to the next round of CAF Champions League easier on Saturday with strong showing against Nigerian champs, Lobi Stars.
The Tshwane giants are second on the Group A table, tied on seven points with 2017 African champs Wydad Casablanca, who they travel to in their final round-robin match.
Their immediate task is against a side they lost to in the competition, succumbing to a 2-1 defeat after opening the scoring against the run of play in the first half.
For Lobi Stars, that would be their only victory in the round, as they now occupy the bottom of the table having lost two and drawn one since that dominant display in Enugu.
They come up against a side which has a perfect home record in the group stage, edging Wydad 2-1 before seeing off Asec Mimosas with a convincing 3-1 scoreline.
Lobi Stars have not won any of their games away from home, losing four and drawing one which includes their games in the preliminary round.
Lobi Stars must work hard without fear and strive to fight for the maximum points from the blast of the referee’s whistle until the very end. They have the players and what is left of them is to play with the mentality that they can do it.
