Mamelodi Sundowns have been boosted by the return of two of the club’s biggest stars as they look to overturn their 2-0 defeat to Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly this weekend.
The Brazilians suffered defeat in Cairo just over a week ago with Mosimane’s men making their home ground advantage count.
Now, with Sundowns set to host the Red Eagles at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday, they have been boosted by the return of star attacking duo Themba Zwane and Kermit Erasmus, who took part in the club’s training session on Thursday.

Erasmus, who had been battling injury could only manage a late cameo appearance for Sundowns in the first leg, but indications are that he could see more game-time in the reverse fixture.
Reigning PSL Player of the Season Zwane, who was sorely missed in the first encounter, has been declared fit and is expected to feature in Saturday’s match, as Sundowns look to pull off a shock result against the reigning champions, that could see them reach the semifinal for the first time since lifting the trophy back in 2016.
The clash is scheduled for Saturday at 15:00.
