Downs gear up for tough USM Alger Challenge

The Brazilians will wrap up a week of preparations over the festive season with a mouth-watering clash against USM Alger in Group C of the CAF Champions League.

The home side coming off a 1-0 defeat to USM Bel-Abbès in the Algerian Premier League will look to bounce back when they host Downs at the Mustapha Tchaker Stadium on Saturday evening.

The high-flying Brazilians lie in top spot in Group C with 4 points from 2 games while their Algerian counterparts lie in second with 2 points, following their two draws against Petro de Luanda and WAC Casablanca.

Sundowns, who will take to the pitch on Saturday having played 6 games in December already, have embraced the busy schedule with preparations going well and the team in good spirits.

“We have to focus on the game, we have to deliver, there is no time for excuses.” Said Coach Pitso Mosimane.

Downs will be looking to end 2019 on a high by claiming all three points on the road and creating some breathing room in Group C before WAC Casablanca and Petro de Luanda lock horns later on in the weekend.

    It looks like our boyz are just playing for a draw. This game is winnable, and a little bit of extra effort is needed from our players to win the game. I was expecting them to play their socks off since they spent Christmas in a foreign country, just to take out that frustration on the game

    Well done boyz. We’ve virtually qualified for the next round. We were never under any threat from this team, and I feel we should’ve won by a bigger margin.
