Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns full-back Thapelo Morena believes the club's involvement in the CAF Champions League hands the side an advantage in the Absa Premiership.

With Sundowns taking part in the group stages of the competition during the pre-season period, Morena takes the view that the Brazilians are in an advantageous situation as they have had more time to prepare and be highly competitive.

Currently, Downs are bottom of Group C with just two points from three matches and require some positive results in their remaining games.

The outfit from Chloorkop are next in action when they host AS Togo-Port on Friday.

"It's good because when the league starts we're already in our Week 3 when they (PSL opposition) are starting their first week,” Morena told KickOff website.

"(CCL) is a good competition, it's good games (to play) heading towards the league because we'll have that momentum that we need."

Morena added he was hopeful of achieving more success in 2018/19 with the PSL champions, saying: "I just want to deliver more than I did last season.

"I want to do my best and I'm hoping to get another gold medal."
