Mamelodi Sundowns battled it out for their place in the next round of this year’s Nedbank Cup on Friday night - full match report here - as Ajax Cape Town took the game to extra time at the Cape Town Stadium.
The Brazilians progressed from the Round of Last 32 thanks to a solitary goal from Tebogo Langerman, who beat Sander Westerveld with a thunderous long-range drive, in the 1-0 win.
Last season Downs lost in the final to cross-city rivals, SuperSport United, and will be aiming to go one step further this time round.
Club captain, Teko Modise, is happy with the start to the side’s Nedbank Cup run and said that they will continue to battle until they lift the trophy.
“I think it was a good start. We reached the final last season and we want to go all the way again, and this time, win it. It won't be easy but winning against Ajax was a great start. We can look back and say we did very well,” Modise explained.
