The Brazilians have lost just once in their last 14 matches, a 2-1 loss at the hands of Maritzburg United in a league clash last month.

Mngqithi wary of Clinton Larsen factor!
“We have profiled the team and we realised that they have former Premier League players in their team.” Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi told the club’s media team.
“Some of them I have worked with like Nene (Jabulani), Zuke (Sandile) and Manzini (Lerato) who spent some time with Royal AM and spent more time at Bloemfontein Celtic.
“The number of games that they have played in their league is not very helpful as you know they have age restrictions but when it comes to the Nedbank Cup they are bringing a different team with a lot of experienced players.
“We are confident that Mamelodi Sundowns will have to give it our best shot and compete on the day.

“Remember the MTN 8 at Lucas Moripe and we are very aware that we are coming up against a very experienced coach and we need to thread very careful”
