Masilela: Dan Knew How To Beat Downs

Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Joel "Fire" Masilela, has said that he knew Chippa United would be able to hold his former club at bay in their MTN8 semi-final showdown yesterday.

Chippa held the Brazilians to a goalless draw in the first-leg of the MTN8 semi-final at Nelson Mandela bay and Masilela was not surprised by the tactical prowess shown by Chilli Boys’ coach Dan Malesela.

“I knew what Dan would do,” he told Soccer Laduma. “He knows Sundowns and he played a good pressing game, he managed to outplay them in the midfield. They played well against Sundowns and managed to stop those one-twos.”

Masilela went on to say that the second-leg in Pretoria, however, will not be as easy for Chippa.

“Both teams had their chances in the game,” he continued. But in the second-leg, Chippa will struggle to contain Downs, especially if their confidence is boosted by a win in the CAF game (against Zesco United).”
