Downs Draw Tshwane Rivals in Nedbank Cup

Mamelodi Sundowns supporters have another Tshwane Derby to look forward to as The Brazilians have been drawn against rivals SuperSport United in the Last 32 of the Nedbank Cup.

Downs will be facing a SuperSport United side who are no strangers this season, having already met once in the Absa Premiership, and twice in the two-legged 2019 MTN 8 semi-final. The record between the two sides this season is even, with each side having one win, one draw and one loss to their name.

Downs’ defensive stalwart Mosa Lebusa represented the club at the draw which took place at Nedbank in Sandton on Thursday evening, and spoke of how the team is looking forward to the tie:

“I think every game that we play forces us to get down to business, whenever teams face Mamelodi Sundowns they bring their A-game, SuperSport is no exception to that.”

“SuperSport always gives us a run for our money, and it’s going to be a tough one.”

The Brazilians will be looking to claim the Nedbank Cup trophy for the first time since 2015 and add to their silverware this season, having already claimed the 2019 Telkom Knockout Cup.

Official dates and venues are still to be confirmed.

    It is a good draw, these strong teams are good for Sundowns especially now that they are in the Caf games, its good to prepare using big local teams, they real give them a proper run, there is no room to undermine anything, so its real good. For sure every team when playing against Sundowns brings their A -GAME, in short if want to see the best of any team in the Psl play it against Sundowns and its true. What does it mean? Sundowns have become a standard and a reference point. For Sundowns to win any match they just have to up their game, give at least an A+ Game, if they give an A game it result in draws because the opponents give the same A game. As for Sundowns must just forget about an easy game, they will never get it, they must just learn to fight for their wins, many players play for themselves,once they can adjust and play for the team and for each other many wins and goals will come.Goals always come from interplays and passes, no defenders panic when playing against Sundowns because there is no one willing be known threat, as long as we continue like that our wins will always be hard fought, even our set pieces, there is no one that the opponents can be seen making sure is attended, its because opponents have put us on a scale, no need for panic buttons. Once we can improve on that, we are a real threat but as for now, chiefs have a fearful and aggressive strike force than us. Its a fact at least for now. Kby

    Its only my opinion, if We can’t get Musona let’s go for Moseamedi I like his fighting spirit and never say die attitude, We nid strong players like him on Champions league.

  3. The long awaited draw is now done. I always say, it is what happens behind the scenes that matters. Field play is often the result. The moral of the players must be managed effectively and separated from the management issues. I understand Pitso and Kekana are on the path of negotiating contracts in a few months. May these minor discussions not temper with the game. I believe Sundowns has the best of the best players in Africa and a highly skilled technical team. The monitoring of moral must be settled off the field because it contributes to how the boys are in-sync on the field. All the best to the boys. We will be keeping a close eye. Forever Yellow ⭐️

    My opinion is that let sundowns get the player that wears no 10 at stellenbosch DC. That boy can make a very good striker under Pitso.
