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.
