The front door is wide open for Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns has proven beyond any reasonable doubt- that their success in intercontinental club- in 2016 was not a mere fluke.

Sundowns Champions league victory three years ago- was shadowed by their reinstatement- into the competition. Many dubbed The Brazilians victory a "back door success." This time around Sundowns needed no favours to book a spot in the semi-finals. Beating the team of The Century, Al Ahly, five-one on aggregate. Surely Sundowns has made a mark as one of the most feared teams in Africa.

The Pitso Mosimane coached side- has set a date with- Morrocan side Wydad Casablanca in the last four. Casablanca is more than an- open book test to- Sundowns. The two side have locked horns seven times before and there are scores to settle. Casablanca has claimed four victories- with the other three going Sundowns' way. The renewal rivalry will be more crunching as there is a spot in the final to fight for.

'Back door' success has granted Sundowns an opportunity to gauge themselve against African giants. With the first leg of the two-legged semi finals set to be played in Morroco- the Patrice Motsepe owned outfit must cherish this moment. Sundowns has the front door keys.

The front door is wide open.
