The Pretoria-based club currently occupy third spot with seven points, two points adrift of DR Congo giants, TP Mazembe and Horoya of Guinea who will be in action against each other in a simultaneous fixture in Lubumbashi.
On the contrary, a victory on Saturday may still not be enough for Matsatsantsa should Mazembe and Horoya play out to a draw as that will see all three teams tied on 10 points and will need to be separated by the regulations.
However, all three sides played out to a stalemate in all their encounters and the aforementioned scenario would mean that goal difference would be the decider on who advances to the next stage of the competition.
United goalie, Ronwen Williams who recently penned a record five-year extension with the club refused to play the numbers game and said that they would treat Saturday’s match like final and hope the other result favour them.
“We are obviously in a tricky situation that isn’t ideal for us. But we need to go out there, get the three points and score as many goals as possible and see what happens with the other game.
“They (Mounana) have been the weakest side in the group but we can’t underestimate them. It won’t be easy but we need to try our best not to be concerned too much about what happens in the other match and do the business here at home” said Williams.
“Matsatsantsa” will fancy their chances against Mounana after coming out with a 5-3 victory in Gabon.
Meanwhile, Platinum Stars will be playing for pride in their last match against Mbabane Swallows from their neighbouring country, Swaziland.
“Dikwena” were booted out of the competition after MC Alger blew their title aspirations by 2-0 win which saw them rooted at the bottom of Group A with two.
The match will be a dead rubber as both Stars and Swallows have no mathematical chance of advancing further irrespective of the outcome between the other fixture between Alger and CS Sfaxien.
However, “Dikwena” will be out to avenge the 4-2 defeat suffered at the hands of Swallows last month in Swaziland.
