Downs take on USM Alger


Mamelodi Sundowns return to CAF Champions League action this weekend as they prepare to host Algerian side USM Algers in their Group C encounter.

Downs sit on top of Group C with seven points from a possible nine ahead of Wydad AC who have five points.

Saturday’s opponents USM come into the tie sitting in third place with two points from their three games.

Downs will be looking to do the double over USM after claiming a hard-fought 1-0 win away in Algeria at the end of the year thanks to a solitary Hlompho Kekana goal.

Mosa Lebusa spoke to the media about the importance of winning at home as they look to cement their place at the top of the Group C.

“It’s very important because we want to finish on top of the group. The coach has made it clear to us that we have to finish the group on top.”

“We have to finish this one off this Saturday and hopefully at the end of the group we will be on top.”

Downs take on USM Algers at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Kickoff is at 15:00.
