Sundowns were due to play the group B clash against Belouizdad on Tuesday, February 23, but the Brazilians were denied the relevant travelling documents due to concerns over COVID-19.

Now the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed that the clash will be played in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, on Sunday, February 28. Kick off is at 13h00 GMT.

"If they are playing over the weekend, then they can't play Nedbank Cup. We will send out information because Sundowns is still talking to them about other options, so we are waiting to hear from Sundowns. I was on the phone with Yogesh (Singh) just now. We will wait to see what CAF says," PSL Acting CEO Mato Madlala told the Siya crew.
