The games are coming in thick and fast as Sundowns are back in action in the quarter finals of the Nedbank Cup against Highlands Park. The Brazilians held their nerve and ensured they progressed to the next round when they did the business against VUT FC, securing a 2-0 win. A vintage header from Arendse and a clinical strike from Mahlambi proved the difference on the day.
Highlands Park made tough work of their previous game in the Nedbank Cup against Kaizer Chiefs, scoring a goal and contributing an own goal which meant the game went to extra time and then on to penalties. They kept their composure winning the penalty shootout 5-4 and making sure they secured a spot in the quarter finals.
Outside of the Cup the Brazilians have an excellent record against Highlands Park having remained unbeaten in their last 5 encounters, but the boys are all too aware of the difficult game that lies ahead. The coach will have to manage his squad as the fixtures keep coming.
Sundowns vs Highlands Park will be played on Saturday evening in Tembisa. Kick off will take place at 18h00 (CAT) at Makhulong Stadium.
