This weekend will see club footballing activities resume in South Africa with the TKO competition set to get under way.
Bloemfontein Celtic boss Steve Komphela whose side would be facing Mamelodi Sundowns says it would be a difficult game for his boys.
Both teams have met once this season in the Absa fixture in a game that ended goalless with controversy as the referee unfortunately disallowed Sundowns goal.
Komphela told reporters: “Not that it’s tricky. The quality at Sundowns we all know and, in a situation, where teams are seeded you have no choice – you are going to get a top dog.
“We need to go through the Sundowns hurdle first, the big one. We don’t want to look at the end when in the beginning you are facing a cement wall. We need to go through Sundowns and then take baby steps.
“Having been in the final last year, it gives us hope to replicate that and even go one further and win it. We have to be optimistic and we have to acknowledge it.”
