The CAF Super Cup final is a one-legged tie contested by the winners of the CAF Confederation Cup and CAF Champions League, in which both of the Tshwane giants, SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns, are participating in.
SuperSport United are in group stages of the Confederation Cup and have just pulled off a massive 5-3 win away in Congo against CF Mounana, even though the Congolese team were given two penalties. Nonetheless, the Tshwane giants managed to score many goals away from home and win the game.
With Mamelodi Sundowns, defending their CAF Champions League trophy and already in group stages, one would hopeful that, this time around, they do not wait to be reinstated before showing domination and hunger for wins.
Should Sundowns be successful and SuperSport clinch the CAF Confederation Cup, South Africa might host their own one-legged tie for the first time in a stadium that is home not only to Sundowns but SuperSport at well, the Lucas ‘Masterpieces’ Moripe Stadium.
Sundowns are the current champions of the Super Cup, after beating TP Mazembe 1-0 at home and that was historic, which could give them an edge in a dreamy Tshwane derby over the inexperienced SuperSport United.
However, with the quality and financial muscle to lure in best coaches and players, both teams have the advantage to give the country what is needed, continental domination.
Could we have a Tshwane derby Super Cup final?
