The Brazilians Shift Their Focus Back to Domestic League

Mamelodi Sundowns will welcome KwaZulu-Natal side, Amazulu FC, at Loftus Versfeld for a midweek clash on Tuesday evening. The Brazilians are coming from a CAF Champions League sweep against FC Nouadhibou over the weekend and will be switching their focus back to the DStv Premiership before heading back to the Champions League on the weekend.

The last time the two sides met, Usuthu were the hosts and were defeated by Bafana Ba Style in a 1-0 occasion through a penalty kick by Lucas Ribeiro in the early minutes of the first half. In this return fixture, Coach Rulani’s men will look to repeat another victory against their counterparts, only this time, at home.

Downs are running on a tight schedule this year, having back to back games in both domestic and national competitions. With the return leg fixture against TP Mazembe coming up this weekend, Coach Rulani had to highlight that their focus is currently on their encounter against the KwaZulu-Natal outfit.

“We need to recover from our trip in Mauritania, watch the game and do analysis on our performance. We have a midweek match against Amazulu FC first before meeting TP Mazembe. We are taking it one game at a time and ensuring that we are well prepared for Amazulu,” he said.

Mamelodi Sundowns will host Amazulu FC on Tuesday evening at Loftus Versfeld. Kick-off is scheduled for 19H30 live on SuperSport TV.

    Very good performance by the boys,what i love the most about this team is the fact that no matter who the coach picks they do the job and what is so exciting is like we bought new players in Zungu,Maboe,Sirino and Lunga,the boys are marvel to watch,Lunga is like he has been playing regularly,Sirino’s hunger is back,he is running and chasing like a teenager,Lebo runs the whole 90+ minutes,defending and also creating goals,Zungu is playing very well in his new role,he rarely losses the ball and also create goals as a central defender that is so special.Mbule needs to up his game and play direct football and also stop doing difficult and fancy things on the pitch,he is got the skill and strength,he just needs to take his football to another level.Thanks to the technical team for the wonderful job they are doing,now i can honestly say the coach is also honest to the players.Coach you have put the team to a level where we can go the whole season undefeated,now you are left with one thing and one thing only,playing our development players,if you can also master that i would say you are the best coach in Africa and rate you among the best in the world.
