Mamelodi Sundowns will host Al Ahly in the return leg of the CAF Champions League quarter-final, this after the North Africans already claimed a 2-0 win on Egyptian soil this past Saturday.
The two sides will lock horns on Saturday afternoon, March 07, as Head Coach Pitso Mosimane’s side look to do some damage control to their negative aggregate scoreline.
Like Sundowns did last week, Al Ahly have landed in Mzansi days before the clash, planning accordingly to the climate in Pretoria.
Al Ahly have not yet beaten Sundowns on South African soil and following last season’s 5-0 thrashing, the Egyptian side will be weary of the threat the Brazilians will pose while playing in front of their home crowd.
Sundowns eliminated Al Ahly from the quarter-finals last year and it remains to be seen whether the Brazilians will do so once again.
