Mamelodi Sundowns have a mountain to climb when they host Al Ahly on Saturday.
Sundowns have it all to play for in the return leg of the CAF Champions league, going into the tie with a two-goal deficit. The Brazilians were undone following a clinical performance by Al Ahly, in front of their home crowd at the Cairo International Stadium last Saturday evening.
The coach was in a reflective mood after the game as he commented on the performance of his charges, “I think we played ok, we played well, it’s just that two goals, it will be difficult to turn those around, but we will push to achieve that.”
Al Ahly arrived in South Africa on Monday night ahead of this weekend’s fixture and will begin preparations, as they take on the Brazilians in front of their supporters at the fortress which is the Lucas Moripe Stadium.
