Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Carlo Scott believes the Brazilians will win the CAF Champions League and in doing so will land the club's first star.
Scott, who was a part of the Brazilians squad that last reached the final of the tournament in 2001, is of the belief that Pitso Mosimane's side can beat Egyptian giants Zamalek over two-legs.
The Chloorkop-based outfit beat the White Knights twice in the group stages, and the 36-year-old feels that Bafana Bastyle can replicate their dominance in the two-legged final in October.
The Patrice Motsepe-owned outfit have never won in African club competition, with a 4-1 aggregate defeat to Al Ahly in the final in 2001 the closest the club have got.
Orlando Pirates remain the only South African team to have won a star when they triumphed in Africa's most prestigious club competition in 1995.
Nonetheless, Scott has explained why 2016 could be Sundowns' year to bring home the trophy.
"Sundowns currently play good expansive football. The players that they are having have enough experience to take them all the way," he told Goal.com website.
"I don't foresee Zamalek stopping them because they did beat them earlier in the competition and that should help them as well."
