Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns and ASEC Mimosas
settled for a 0-0 draw in their CAF Champions League Group A encounter
on Tuesday night in Ivory Coast.
The visitors to West Africa came close in the 23rd minute as Thapelo
Morena fired wide following a good pass from the always incisive Themba
ASEC did have their moments in what was a sluggish encounter but didn't really create any clear openings where it counted.
The game was played at a sleepy pace as it appeared both teams were content to at least take a point.
New signing Emiliano Tade came on in the second stanza for the unusually ineffective Gaston Sirino.
In the 55th minute Zwane went close as he failed to convert a good chance following a promising move.
Phakamani Mahlambi was introduced into the game for Morena, as coach Pitso Mosimane attempted to find a winning goal.
With that said, it was a strangely dull affair as both outfits picked up a point in West Africa.
Downs are next in action on Wednesday next week when they face
Polokwane City at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria, with a chance
to overtake Bidvest Wits at the top of the Absa Premiership standings.
