Cape Town - Sibusiso Vilakazi believes it will be
important for Mamelodi Sundowns to dominate possession against
Maritzburg United in the Telkom Knockout final.
The Brazilians will be clear favourites when they take on United at
Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, but Vilakazi expects a tough battle
against Eric Tinkler's men.
Sundowns often dictate games by controlling possession while
patiently probing for openings, and Vilakazi believes United will do
everything they can to prevent them from doing so.
"Each and every time we've tried to give it (domestic cup
competitions) our best shot, and in the last couple of years we were not
able to go all the way. But it's now a different scenario," said
Vilakazi, according to IOL.
"They (Maritzburg) are a very organised team and they've done very
well to get this far, so it will be a very good challenge for us. But I
think the most important thing is to win the cup.
"They'll try by all means to make sure that we do not have the ball because we always want to have the ball and dominate.
"That (having the ball) will give us opportunities and expectations
of winning the cup. When we have the ball, we must try by all means to
make use of it."
