Mamelodi Sundowns played only one match in 2016, taking 2-1 win over Enyimba in CAF Champions League. The season in South Africa ended on May 21st and now they focused on international matches only. Mamelodi played 14 matches on the road in 2016, recording seven wins, four draws and three defeats.
Zamalek and Mamelodi Sundown haven’t faced one another before. Egyptian side is in impressive condition while the visitors lack match practice as the season in domestic league ended a while ago. On top of that, Zamalek show impressive results at home and should improve this record.
Prediction for the match: Zamalek to win.
