Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana believes it is about time their domestic form translates into CAF Champions League glory.

The Brazilians last season clinched the Premiership title in record-setting fashion along with the Telkom Knockout trophy.

And Sundowns have been in trail-blazing form in the CAF tournament, having advanced to the semi-finals after seeing off Enyimba and Zamalek in the group stages.

"If you look at the way we have been playing we have done the same in the past three seasons and every of those seasons we have played in Africa and still managed to win trophies at home," Kekana told Soccer Laduma.

"This time we want to go further and win the Champions league as well as trophies at home. Continuity is important."

Sundowns will face Zambian giants Zesco United in the semi-final first-leg on 17 September.
