Can Downs Make It Three Out Of Three Against Bucs?

After beating AS Vita at home but crashing out of the CAF Champions League on away goals on Wednesday evening, Mamelodi Sundowns will now shift their focus to the Nedbank Cup, in which they will host Orlando Pirates in a quarter-final encounter at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

The two long-standing rivals will be doing battle for the third time this season. Bafana Ba Style have won both ties, and their visitors will be hoping to knock them out of the competition. However, Sundowns fan China believes his beloved club will go on to make it three out of three.

"It's definitely a make or break game tomorrow," he said.

"We have to win that game tomorrow in order to stand a chance of winning the trophy."

Pirates last won the competition in 2014, and Downs are defending their trophy, which should help make the match a spectacle. It will be the Pretoria side's first real test in the competition after brushing aside minnows in the two previous rounds, and China thinks they'll also put this one to bed with ease.

"I like my team's mentality," he added.

"The boys have a winning mentality. We may have crashed out of the Champions League, but we won the game.

"We'll beat Pirates 2-0."

Do you think Sundowns will beat Pirates for the third time in a row? Will Pirates get one over their rivals? Share your thoughts below.
