Sundowns’ winger believes Al Ahly’s big defeat still in their mind

winger has urged the Brazilians’ fans to fill up the Lucas Moripe Stadium ahead of the second leg of the quarter-final against Al Ahly.

Al Ahly defeated Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 in a tough encounter last Saturday, thanks to a brace from Ali Maaloul.

The Red Devils will visit Sundowns on Saturday, March 7 at the Lucas Moripe Studium hoping to forget their latest unfavourable memory at the same ground last year, when they lost 5-0 against the Brazilians.

“We expect our supporters to fill up the Lucas Moripe Stadium. It will give us a massive boost like Al Ahly [fans] did [in Cairo]. We experienced it in Wydad and everywhere,” Lakay told

“We are appealing to all the supporters to come in big numbers to fill Atteridgeville and make it a big yellow war so that we intimidate them.”

“At the back of their minds they still have that 5-0 that happened last year. That will also play a big factor according to them. We know it’s not the same game but they will be thinking about that.”

“Coming to Atteridgeville and having supporters back us, when they fill the stadium, it gives us that extra confidence and motivation to perform better.”
