Mamelodi Sundowns attacker, Cuthbert Malajila thinks that the Brazilians have gained enough confidence to continue their winning run in Cape Town.

Sundowns finally broke their winless run against Cape Town City, when they secured a 1-0 Absa Premiership win over the Citizens at the Athlone Stadium.

However, prior to the encounter, Masandawana suffered three consecutive losses to City, one at the beginning of the current season and two in the 2016/17 season.

However, following their three wins in the Mother City against Ajax Cape Town, City and Cape Town All Stars, Malajila thinks the Brazilians have enough confidence to once again take on a side in the Mother City.

Masandawana will travel away to Cape Town for the quarter-final round of the Nedbank Cup competition, where they will come up against Head Coach Benni McCarthy’s side, looking to take one step closer to domestic silverware this season. 

Talking after the Nedbank quarter-final draw, Malajila said, “We expected it because we knew the last eight teams, which were there so you have to expect any team. 

“We have come to Cape Town, we have won and I think that we have been good on the road, especially this season; even in Cape Town we have won all our games. 

“So, it is a plus to us but I know it will be a difficult game. It is a cup game now, it is going to be difficult but we have to bring our A game. Now, it is better than before because we have been struggling to play in Cape Town over the years, but now we have a plus because we won. We have the confidence,” he added.
