Sundowns advance in Champions League
Posted: 2 March 2008 Time: 08:58
Mamelodi Sundowns put their domestic woes behind them for a while at least as they eased into the next round of the CAF Champions League with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Zanzibar champions Miembeni SC at the Super Stadium on Saturday.
The result sees The Brazilians advance 5-0 on aggregate after goals from Bryan Aldave, Lerato Chabangu and a late brace from Peter Ndlovu.
Uruguayan striker Aldave gave the home side the lead on 21 minutes with a finish from close-range, and Chabangu made it 2-0 10 minutes later as he beat the offside trap to put the tie beyond doubt.
The game meandered from there with Calvin Marlin in the home goal a virtual pedestrian, before Ndlovu added the final two goals, first with a shot from Vuyo Mere’s cross, before the same two players combined in injury time to put an extra gloss on the scoreline.
Sundowns now play the winner of the tie between Curepipe Starlight of Mauritius and Coin Nord from the Comores in the next round.
