Having performed admirably in the dress rehearsal when Kaizer Chiefs defeated Mamelodi Sundowns a fortnight ago in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup, Amakhosi duo Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat are now looking towards replicating that form when they face the Brazilians this coming Sunday at Loftus Stadium.
It’s expected to be a titanic tussle between Chiefs and Sundowns in the Absa Premiership.
Castro spoke of the impeding clash with his former team saying: “For me it is an important game. it is as important as all the other games that I have played so far this campaign. We are top of the table and we need to continue working hard. To maintain that spot, we need a good result on Sunday.”
Khama Billiat who was teammates with Castro at Sundowns is aware of the kind of challenge that awaits Chiefs on Sunday. He believes that Chiefs will approach the game with the correct mindset and will go in search of a positive result.
“Having played against them recently, we know they are not going to make it easy for us. We will go into the game with the right mindset not getting carried away that we beat them a few weeks ago. Right now, it requires a lot of hard work from us and we need to work on the details of the game, which will hopefully help us get the result we want,” says Billiat.
Chiefs will be looking towards keeping their place at the top of the table when they visit Sundowns on Sunday afternoon.
Kick-off for the game is at 15h30 at Loftus Versfeld.
