SUNDOWNS HIT THE ROAD EARLY FOR AL AHLY CLASH
Mamelodi Sundowns are leaving nothing to chance and are making sure they will be well prepared by leaving today for Cairo, where they will meet Al Ahly and their former coach Pitso Mosimane in the first leg of their African Champions League quarter-final tie on Saturday. There are no longer any direct flights from Johannesburg to Cairo so the club are having to travel via Addis Ababa, but will arrive in plenty of time. It will give them a chance for several training sessions ahead of the match, but also a much-needed rest after playing on Sunday away in Nelspruit against TS Galaxy.
