Mamelodi Sundowns vs Al Ahly Predictions


The Egyptian giants have never won on South African turf in 11 matches. I am tipping Sundowns to win but it may not be enough to reach the semi-finals.

  • Mamelodi Sundowns have won 9 of their last 11 home matches (CAF Champions League).
  • Mamelodi Sundowns have seen BTTS Yes in 2 of their last 3 home matches against Al Ahly (CAF Champions League).
  • Al Ahly have won 0 of their 11 away matches in South Africa (drawn 7)(all competitions).
  • Al Ahly have scored in 15 of their last 16 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Al Ahly hold a 4-1 advantage over Mamelodi Sundowns across their previous seven meetings with two draws.

Their last meeting was a week ago as Al Ahly won 2-0 at home in the first leg. Taher Mohamed and Salah Mohsen scored the goals.

Mamelodi Sundowns Form


Sundowns are one win from retaining their Premier Soccer League title as they lead the table. They reached this stage of the CAF Champions League by topping their group after winning their first four matches before a draw and a defeat in two dead rubbers.

After a run of four matches without a win, Sundowns won last three matches in a row. A tight 0-0 draw against Golden Arrows was followed by a convincing 3-0 win at Orlando Pirates and 2-0 success against Maritzburg United.

After winning 1-0 at TS Galaxy in the PSL, Sundowns lost the first leg 2-0 last weekend. The team played well but only managed two shots on target in Egypt.

Mamelodi Sundowns Injuries & Team News


Sundowns hope to have star midfielder Themba Zwane fit after injury for this match. Gaston Sirino could move up front against the side that holds an interest in buying him.

Lyle Lakay is expected to start in preference to Aubrey Modiba at left back.

Al Ahly Form


Al Ahly sit second in the Egyptian Premier League, a full ten points off Zamalek but with four matches in hand after just three wins in their last seven league matches. They reached this stage of the CAF Champions League after surprisingly finishing second in their group.

Al Ahly suffered a poor 1-0 loss at Ghazl El Mehalla before A 2-1 win at Al Ittihad. Their last leage match saw a 1-1 draw with title rivals Zamalek as Ah Ahly lead 1-0 in the match before conceding a late goal.

Al Ahly Injuries & Team News


Al Ahly have three long-term injuries in the squad. Ali Maaloul is absent at left back and winger Junior Ajayi is injured. Central midfielder Mohamed Mahmoud is also out with a knee problem.

Coach Pitso Mosimane is expected to start the same XI which won the first leg 2-0 at home.
