Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane said his side got what they wanted after the first leg of the Caf Champions League final against Zamalek in Pretoria on Saturday.

The South African club dismantled the Egyptians 3-0 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium after goals from Anthony Laffor, Tebogo Langerman and an Eslam Hamed own goal.

Although they take a good lead to Egypt for the 2nd leg, Mosimane admitted he did not expect such a commanding performance from his players.

The coach said afterwards: "What an emotional game. I don't think we should complain when we score two goals in the first half.

"I think we got what we wanted - to score the goals, and go to Alexandria with at least something in your pocket. Not to go and fight for a goal there.

"For us as coaches - I think the coach of Zamalek will say the same thing - these teams know each other so well. OK, I didn't predict the scoreline. But the way they play, and the way we play, we know each other well."

Sundowns would become only the second South African side to lift Africa's premier club competition - after Orlando Pirates in 1995 - if they complete the job in Alexandria.
