Downs ready for Billiat & Castro


Mamelodi Sundowns versatile player Thapelo Morena insists they have it figured out on how to deal with former teammates Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro.

The pair mesmerised the Downs defence during the Shell Helix Ultra Cup a fortnight ago with Billiat scoring and assisting in all three Castro’s goals as Chiefs won 4-2.

The two teams will meet again in a sold-out Absa Premiership clash at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Sunday at 3pm.

“Firstly, our defence is going to win us the game, it’s something that we know Khama (Billiat) likes to play on defenders’ shoulders and he is quick and good on the ball,” said Morena.

“Those are some of the things we are going to have to look at. Castro is one of the good finishers in the box and we know we can’t leave him free,” Morena continued.

“For us I think we just haver to go on the field of play and do what we always do in the training pitch, apply our game plan the way we want.

“Like I said knowing the weakness and the strong points that’s what we going to work on them.”
