“It will be a different ball game playing against them [because] they are also coming from wins.” Neo Maema told the Mamelodi Sundowns website.

“They are actually quite motivated to play against us and everybody wants to beat the defending champions.

“It’s going to be a difficult match, but we are a big club, we are professionals and we know what is expected from us.

“We are motivated because we did fairly well and we can only be encouraged to do well.

“Mamelodi Sundowns are also playing on home soil so that’s going to be a huge advantage with our supporters behind us.

“As always that 12th person that we need to get that extra enthusiasm and get into the game.

“It’s also very important for us to stay together as a team and get as many points as possible.”
