Vilakazi: It's going to be a test for 'Downs

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Sibusiso Vilakazi believes the club's clash against Mariveni United in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup will pose a real challenge.

The African champions were drawn to play the SAFA league outfit from Limpopo and are expected to simply have too much firepower when the two sides meet.

It isn't the first time that the Brazilians have faced less fancied opposition - in 2012 the Chloorkop-based outfit famously recorded a 24-0 victory over Powerlines.

However, Vilakazi is adamant that Downs won't lose focus ahead of the encounter with United.

"It's quite an interesting one. But it's a cup game, and in a cup game you have one shot to either win or you are out. But we will gather as much information as possible about them. We want to win," he told the club's official website.

"The game keeps changing. It's going to be a good test for us and also for them. We are motivated. We take it as a cup final. It will be very special. We have a good squad, but this will be very interesting."
