After just one Caf Champions League game that’s counted, Mamelodi Sundowns are already smarting in a very strong position.
The Brazilians have actually won two games, away against ES Setif and now at home against Enyimba on Wednesday night.
However their first win against the Algerians was not counted. Nevertheless Enyimba lost their opening game at home against Zamalek. So, with just one team getting eliminated from this group, due to ES Setif already being disqualified, it means Sundowns just need to avoid defeat in Nigeria.
Another avenue to the knockout round of course, if for Sundowns to pick up points against Zamalek.
Leonardo Castro and Wayne Arendse scored the goals for the Brazilians against Enyimba.
Coach Pitso Mosimane spoke about his happiness with the result.
“We are happy not to be bottom of the log and I think the Egyptians are also happy with the result because it is obvious we have to team up against Enyimba because two teams go through. It is business now. Both of us should be happy,” Mosimane told the media in South Africa.
