Phakamani Mahlambi: We will score three goals against Al Ahly
Sundowns are set to host Al Ahly on Saturday, April 6, at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinals.
However the Masandawana suffered a huge injury blow as winger Anthony Laffor will have to miss the game due to a knee injury.
Mamelodi Sundowns forward Phakamani Mahlambi believes that his side can score three goals against Al Ahly even though the’ll be a tough opponent.
“We obviously want to win the game and go to the semifinals, hopefully it’s going to come through,” Mahlambi said.
“I think if we can get three goals, we will be in a good space, because with those North Africans it’s difficult to play them away with their fans. So I think three goals at home will be good and maybe if we go there [for the second leg] we can get one or two,”
The 21-year-old played for the Red Devils between 2015 and 2017 before joining Sundowns. However despite his huge talent he failed to secure his place in the first team. Even though he won the Egyptian Premier League with the Reds he just played 15 official games scoring once and providing five assists.
“We will score three. With the quality of squad we have and the good coach we have, I think it will be easier when we work for each other. We can overcome the situation.
“With the technical team, they have people who analyse everything. So I think it’s for them, not for me. They are team that play more like english football. They are tactically good. They have a good players. They are coming here to fight, but we have to wait with our weapons and get ready to fight,”
Mamelodi Sundowns are currently on top of the South African league with 44 points, three ahead of their closest rival Orlando Pirates.
