Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his team will need all the experienced players, when they take on Wydad Casablanca from Morocco in a Caf Champions League Group C clash on Saturday.

The Brazilians began their group stages campaign with a bang following their 3-0 victory over Petro De Luanda from Angola on Saturday night.

Sundowns were missing Denis Onyango, Mosa Lebusa and captain Hlompho Kekana. Thapelo Morena was replaced as a precautionary measure.

The 2016 Champions had an easy night against the Angolans, who were back in the Champions League since 2010.

The Brazilians could have easily scored more goals, and Mosimane says the PSL is a quality league.

Sundowns are currently on top of the log with three points after a win. USM Algier from Algeria and Wydad are on second and third respectively with a point each, while Petro are rock bottom with no point. Mosimane was satisfied with the results.

Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso scored the first goal with a header that was created by his compatriot Gaston Sirino.

He was unlucky not to score two more goals when his headers shaved the upright in the  post in the first half, and crossbar in the second. Mosimane says they signed him for Champions League.

Sphelele Mkhulise had a great game on Saturday. He combined well with Sirino to score a third goal.

The youngster has been growing in stature in recent games. Mosimane says he is a brilliant footballer.
