Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Anthony Laffor has called on his team-mates to remain grounded after securing final berths in the CAF Champions League and MTN8.

Sundowns advanced to the final of the CAF tournament where they will face Zamalek after a 2-0 win on Saturday (3-2 aggregate) over Zesco United.

Laffor and Percy Tau scored in the second-leg of the semi-final at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, in Atteridgeville.

The Liberian was also instrumental in the progression to the MTN8 Cup final after scoring the only goal against Chippa United.

"It was all about team work, and I want to give credit to my team-mates. The goal that I scored it's not about me it was something that we have been working on," Laffor told SuperSport.

"The coach told me to take two touches and it was wonderful that I scored. Thanks for the opportunity the coach gave me because it was all about belief and I believed that we could do it and I am happy that I scored to help the team.

"It's going to be tough because we still have to go to Egypt.

"It's not going to be easy there but we need to keep our feet on the ground and listen to the instruction of the coaches.

"We need to concentrate and now focus on the final (MTN8) on Saturday."

Sundowns will face Wits in the MTN8 final at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 17:00.
