Sundowns confident of upsetting Al Ahly

African team of the century Al Ahly return to a scene of their worst defeat in the history of the club on Saturday and the question uppermost on the lips of football followers is whether they are returning to their Waterloo.

The CAF Champions League tie nobody wanted

The draw nobody really wanted was conducted at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) headquarters in Cairo on Friday afternoon. It remained a distinct possibility, but many dismissed it and concluded that Al Ahly and Mamelodi Sundowns would probably meet either at the semi-final stages or in the final of Africa’s premier club competition.

SNUB OFFERS REFLECTION AND EVALUATION

In fact, the goalkeeper was between the sticks when his native country engaged Zambia, Guinea Bissau and Mozambique in all six qualifying matches. But when I look at the Namibian final squad headed...

Justice delayed is justice denied to Mosimane

I have an issue with the PSL prosecutor. Nothing personal mind you, just that I am concerned about the period it takes him to hand down judgement on cases of misconduct either by club officials or football supporters.

Should Sundowns shake in their boots?

The African Champions League has reached a stage where one can safely describe it as “Eat or be eaten” with the best eight teams remaining in the most prestigious of the two Pan-African club competitions. It is perhaps worth mentioning that Mamelodi Sundowns is the only southern African side remaining in the competition where the...
