Mamelodi Sundowns prepare to face Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club in the second leg of their Caf Champions League semifinal tie at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, and want a sea of yellow to greet their opponents in their bid for a second continental title.

The Tshwane giants go into the match at a slight disadvantage, having conceded a 2-1 defeat in the away leg, and will want all the backing they can get as they host the 2017 champions.

Throughout the season, they have enjoyed increasing home support across all competitions , and have stepped up measures to cultivate an intimidating atmosphere in their home games – particularly in the Champions League – by offering free entry for those who show up in the club’s famous colours.

The entertainment on the day will feature performances from the world renowned DJ Maphorisa, rapper Kwesta, DJ Sumbody, as well as some wild swinging legs from Dr Malinga.

Why Mamelodi Sundowns need a full house on Saturday

Sundowns offered a similar fan experience on their last home fixture in the Caf Champions League, which paid dividends, as far as the result is concerned, as they thumped eight-time champions Al Ahly 5-0 to ease their path to the semis.

On the day, the sea of yellow jersey was broken only by a small group of EFF supporters clad in red – the same colour as the visiting team.

The Brazilians take an away goal into Saturday’s clash and will need to win by a margin of at least two goals should they fail to stop Wydad from scoring.

The winner of the tie will face one of TP Mazembe and defending champions Esperance de Tunis, who battle it out in Lumumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo at around the same time on Saturday.

Kick off is at 15:00.
