Cape Town - Mamelodi
Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly wants his club to adopt the same mentality
they had against Zamalek in group stages when they meet in the CAF
Champions League final in Pretoria on Saturday.
Pitso Mosimane's side defeated Zamalek twice in the group stages;
Sundowns won the first match 2-1 away on July 17 and the second leg in
South Africa 1-0 on July 27.
Dolly, who has been ever-present in Sundowns' line-up since he joined
the club last season, has advised his team that not much should change
in their approach ahead of the first-leg meeting.
"It will be very important for us to win at home and score enough
goals," said Dolly. "They are good team, there's no
doubt about that.
"In Egypt they are difficult to beat and they have been scoring (a lot
of) goals when they play at home. So for us I think we have a bit of
advantage over them, beating them twice.
"But I think we should take that advantage knowing that we beat them twice already.
"We shouldn't go into the game thinking 'we going to win'.
"It's going to be a tough game, but for us it's just to play our
normal football and go with the same mentality when we beat them in
Egypt and at home. I think we stand a good chance."
Zamalek are five-time former winners of Africa's premier club competition, although their last title was won in 2002.
The first leg of the CAF Champions League final in Pretoria kicks off on Saturday, October 15 at 15:00.
