Sun­downs plan Za­malek clean sheet

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

CAPE TOWN — Mamelodi Sun­downs de­fender Wayne Arendse be­lieves that keep­ing a clean sheet at home is key to the club’s chances of win­ning the CAF Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal against Za­malek.

Sun­downs face Egypt’s White Knights to­day at Lu­cas Moripe Sta­dium in the first leg, and will no doubt look to stop the vis­i­tors from tak­ing any valu­able away goals back to Giza. Bafana Bastyle do en­joy some­thing of a psy­cho­log­i­cal ad­van­tage over Za­malek — Downs beat the five-time But Her­nan­dez said: "Our strength is the group, but on the counter-at­tack, we are lethal. “We have not started as we would have liked, but we just need two or three good re­sults to grow in con­fi­dence." — AFP. Cham­pi­ons League win­ners twice ear­lier in the group stages of the com­pe­ti­tion.

None­the­less, shut­ting out an away side that scored six goals in a semi-fi­nal vic­tory over Wy­dad Casablanca is the tar­get that Arendse wants his team to aim for.

He told the PSL’s of­fi­cial web­site: “We have to en­sure we keep it tight and keep a clean sheet at home so that they don’t have an away goal. That takes the pres­sure off the team.” — Sport24
