After a disappointing exit - and surprise reprieve, South African football giants, Mamelodi Sundowns are back with a bang - and their fairy-tale in the Caf Champions League is set to continue.  

The Tshwane giants reached the semifinal stages of Africa’s premium club competition in emphatic style. 

The SA Premiership champions are unbeaten in Group B with nine points, while Zamalek are second with three points from three games.

The Brazilians completed the double over Zamalek of Egypt with a 1-0 victory at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville. The Tshwane giants won the first leg 2-1 in Egypt two weeks ago.

The Brazilians maintained their 100% record to win the group with one game to spare. Super sub Percy Tau forced Mossad Ali to score an own goal, with 10 minutes remaining, to send the jubilant Brazilians into seventh heaven.

Downs were not even supposed to be in the group stages in the first place. But they made it as a result of AS Vita of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s disqualification by Caf due to fielding an eligible player in the preliminary stages.

The Brazilians are now looking to go all the way and lift their first African club title. Downs are grabbing their second chance offered by Caf with both hands.

There are three teams in the group with Enyimba of Nigeria occupying bottom of the table with no points after Setif of Algeria were disqualified by Caf for crowd violence.

Sundowns play their final group game away to Enyimba in Nigeria on Tuesday 23 August.

Mosimane made three changes from the team that conquered the Egyptians in North Africa, he brought in Teko Modise for Tiyani Mabunda. 

Themba Zwane made way for Anthony Laffor and Soumahoro Bangaly in for Wayne Arendse in the starting line-up to showcase the depth of his team.

Zimbabwe's Khama Billiat who is on demand from many clubs has been a beacon for the Pretoria ensemble. The Brazilians never gave the Egyptian giants any room to maneuver they were always on top as they showed their hunger to win the game. 

On-form winger Keagan Dolly, who is due to team up with the SA Under-23 national team at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, was also given a run by Mosimane. - Online Sources
