The Brazilians walloped Stars in the quarter-final stages of the Telkom Knockout on Saturday to advance to the next round of the competition.

Downs will take on SuperSport United in semi-finals in a Tshwane derby, however they have three PSL encounters before that and will be looking to build on their run of five successive victories.

Ea Lla Koto went into their encounter with the Brazilians unbeaten in their previous five encounters and Fileccia has indicated that the thumping they received came as a shock.

“Sundowns played very well and we know that they are a big team in South Africa. They’ve been doing well lately and on Sunday they were on top of the world,” the striker told Soccer Laduma.

“They played a top game! For us, I think it wasn’t our day. I understand that sometimes you can have a day off when you are not playing well, but six goals is something else.

“We’ve been playing a very nice brand of football in the past two months and beaten very good teams, so I never thought we’d lose 6-1. We should have done better, but these things happen in the game and we have to look forward.”
