Ajax Cape Town coach, Roger de Sa has given Mamelodi Sundowns the shortest advice they might ever get ahead of their Caf Champions League final on Saturday, but it may be the most valuable yet.

“My advice is, don’t concede at home,” said De Sa.

The former Orlando Pirates mentor is perhaps the best person to give Pitso Mosimane’s team some advice considering that he is the last man to guide a team to the final of the continental competition.

De Sa took the Buccaneers to the final in 2013, but his team lost 4-1 to Egyptian giants, Al Ahly after drawing the first leg 1-1 at Orlando Stadium. Ahly went on to win the second leg 3-1 on home soil.

Sundowns are up against the other Egyptian giants, Zamalek and host the first leg at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
