Can Downs Make It To The Final?

The attention of football lovers in South Africa will be fixed on the match between Mamelodi Sundowns and ZESCO United. Sundowns could emulate Ted Dumitru’s side that reached the CAF Champions league final.

That side was brimming with talent, but this team could even be better with the likes of Laffor, Tau, Mabunda, Dolly and star man, Billiat likely to cause problems for the Zambians. Downs have been unbeaten at home in the CCL but the worry is that they do concede.

This is one game that they need to defend well in. The Zambians are a dangerous outfit especially out wide and going forward. They do not need many invitations to score. One goal could mean Downs are out and they can forget about the dream of playing Real Madrid.

Pitso must be credited for the way he has planned for their games. It shows that Pitso learned from Erick Tinkler’s Orlando Pirates and that of his predecessor, Roger De Sa. Sundowns management deserve credit for good planning as well.

Pitso is no cry baby and his latest motto, "against the odds", makes Masandawana the underdogs but Pitso knows that they are the favourites to go to the final.

Will Pitso Mosimane's stars go one better than Ted Dumitru’s team and win the CCL?
