Baxter: Downs can hit Zamalek on the break

Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter believes Mamelodi Sundowns can punish Zamalek if the White Knights side open up to attack in this weekend's CAF Champions League second leg clash in Egypt.

The Brazilians currently enjoy a 3-0 advantage over the five-time Champions League winners, and are strong favourites to wrap up the tie in Alexandria on Sunday.

Mosimane is seemingly on the brink of helping the reigning Premiership champions win Africa's most prestigious club competition for just the second time.

Orlando Pirates were the last team to win the competition in 1995, although Bucs did reach the final in 2013 under Roger de Sa. The Happy People lost 3-1 on aggregate to Al-Ahly.

And, with a piece of history appearing close to being written, Baxter has expressed his view that Sundowns could catch the side from Giza on the break.

"I cannot see Zamalek coming back. If they try to have a go, then Sundowns will catch them with their pants down," as quoted by the SowetanLIVE.

"It's just about done and dusted, but Pitso will not be thinking that."

Matsatsantsa will be involved in Africa next year when they take part in the CAF Confederation Cup.
