Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Matthew Booth believes that coach Pitso Mosimane’s side could be upset by Chippa United in the second-leg of their MTN8 semi-final game at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.
The Chilli Boys held the Brazilians to a 0-0 draw in the first-leg game.
“I said it before the game that I believe Sundowns would get a good result away to Chippa, but Chippa has what it takes to turn the result around away from home. My reasoning for that was simply the fact that before the first-leg, Sundowns were as fresh as any other team, but the same can’t be said going into the second-leg,” said Booth.
Booth is concerned about Sundowns’ busy schedule in the domestic league and CAF Champions League, as well as the travelling that is involved in the process.
“That is a lot of travelling and I believe Chippa will look to capitalise on that in order to cause an upset,” explained the former Bafana Bafana centre-back.
