Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa)
The Brazilians head here with their first defeat in 90 minutes in this competition since April last year as they were stunned by TP Mazembe. As usual, Mamelodi Sundowns controlled the game but were not clinical enough. They were better than the hosts, but Glody Likonza's only goal made the difference for TP Mazembe. Mamelodi Sundowns quickly adjusted when they won on the road against Amazulu in the SPL.
Mamelodi Sundowns are one of the best teams in Africa; they’ve won the CAF Champions League once and have made it out of the group stage in five consecutive seasons. Mamelodi Sundowns were eliminated by Wydad Casablanca in the semi-finals last season.
The Egyptian heavyweight suffered their first loss in the tournament when they were beaten by Nouadhibou on the road. To make it worse, the Mauritiana side had three shots at goal, of which two were converted, compared to Pyramids, who fired twenty shots and couldn’t convert them. Their problem of struggling to find the back of the net continues, as they have scored five in their last five games in 90 minutes.
The Egyptian-based side head into this competition for the first after finishing second in the league last season. Pyramids, who were knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals, will be out to make their mark here.
Pyramids have signed some experienced players this season, making them the favorite.
