Mamelodi Sundowns players have been advised not to put themselves under unnecessary pressure against great players like Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

This comes as Pretoria-based club, popularly known as Bafana Ba Style, are set to lock horns with La Liga champions, Barcelona on Wednesday evening at the FNB Stadium at 18h00.

Former Sundowns player, Surprise Moriri, who coincidentally scored the only goal for Sundowns when the two current reigning champions in their respective leagues met 11 years ago at Loftus Stadium, says players should play to entertain fans who will be attending the game.

“I think our boys are much matured, and I think they won’t be scared to take up the challenge and express themselves. The one thing that they just need to do is to go there and enjoy themselves, they don’t have to put them under pressure, because it is not about three points or anything else. It is just Mandela’s Centenary celebrations, they just have to entertains the fans, that’s it,” adds Moriri.

The 38 year-old has also reflected on a goal that he scored against Spanish giants.

“It was a great feeling; especial considering that was the first goal of the match at an early stage as well. The game itself was a great feeling, because it was not about winning but we were playing to enjoy ourselves,” says Moriri.

Moriri believes the South African outfit will win and he is banking on Percy Tau who is join-top goal scorer and tipped to be Player of the Season for 2017/18.
