With a 2-0 win already in the bag following the first leg in Equatorial Guinea, Masandawana will surely fancy their chances.
The Champions League has become Mosimane’s pride and joy over recent years and he will hope that his charges can keep their momentum going.
Sundowns will be buoyant after winning the Tshwane Derby on the weekend as they continued their formidable unbeaten run in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
However, the Champions League is a completely different beast, and after bowing out of the group stages last time around, Sundowns will have a point to prove, starting with progression from the preliminary rounds.

Squads & Team News
While Mosimane may opt to rest some of his senior players, Sundowns are not expected to take their foot off the pedal at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
Players such as Jeremy Brockie and Themba Zwane, who netted in the away leg, are likely to continue to lead the attack alongside the likes Gaston Sirino and Lebohang Maboe.
At the back, Mosimane is expected to keep faith in defender Rivaldo Coetzee, who has already earned praise from his coach after making just two appearances. And after missing out on over a year of competitive first team football, Sundowns will relish the opportunity to give him all the game time they can afford.
Meanwhile, Sundowns' trip to Equatorial Guinea would have taught them everything they need to know about the opposition.
It was a comfortable and routine performance for Sundowns, but they will be wary of some of the dangers that Vegetarianos pose.
Sundowns have won three of their last five games in all competitions, making them the form team going into the clash.
The Tshwane giants will also relish the opportunity to play at home considering that they are unbeaten in their last six Caf Champions League games played in Tshwane.
