Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes rivals Kaizer Chiefs have an easier match-up in the CAF Champions League preliminary round.
Sundowns will face Zimbabwean champions Chicken Inn, while Amakhosi take on Volcan de Moroni from the Comoros.
Despite the tough draw, Mosimane expects his star-studded Brazilians to hold their own against the Gamecocks on February 13.
"We have been drawn against a very good side. In fact, I think our draw is tougher than Chiefs'," Mosimane told the club's official website.
"Chicken Inn is not an easy team. They are a young team, and we signed Kuda Mahachi from them.
"We are doing our homework, but we also have held our pre-season camps in Zimbabwe the past two years.
"We are quite familiar with the environment and the stadium, which is more like Olen Park, the stadium Jomo Cosmos use in Potchefstroom."
