What transpired in the first leg in Luanda
Mamelodi Sundowns earned a crucial 2-0 first-leg victory away to Petro Atletico in Angola in their African Football League (AFL) quarter-final on Saturday.
After a below-par performance in the first half, Masandawana got second-half goals from Marcelo Allende and Gift Maseko to take a commanding advantage back home for the second leg, where they would be expected to claim yet another win.
Their win avenged last season's Champions League exit to Petro and put the Brazilians on the brink of a semi-final spot.
“You have seen many things happen in football, you have seen teams come back from greater scorelines. We look forward to taking the scoreline to South Africa but we approach it as 0-0 and a different ball game,” Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rhulani Mokwena said in a press conference after the first leg game.
Despite his words, Mokwena will be confident his side can progress to the last four of the inaugural competition.
