African Super League: Mamelodi Sundowns join Al Ahly and semi-final

Held in check by Petro Luanda (0-0) on Tuesday evening, Mamelodi Sundowns qualified for the semi-finals of the African Football League (African Super League) thanks to their 2-0 first leg victory. The South Africans join Al Ahly in the last four.

Mamelodi Sundowns will also play in the semi-finals of the African Football League. The South Africans snatched their ticket to the last four after their success against Petro Luanda, at the end of the double confrontation counting for the quarter-finals. Ruthless in the first leg with a 2-0 victory against the Angolans, the team of the rainbow nation this time settled for a goalless draw (0-0).

Reduced to 10 from the first minutes, following the expulsion of central defender Mothobi Mvala, for having received a red card for a foul in the last defender position on Tiago Azulao (2e), the locals had to turn their backs to keep their clean sheet. A challenge taken up more or less well by Mamelodi, helped above all by the offensive blunders of the Pétro players despite the 94 minutes that the match lasted.

In the semi-final, Mamelodi Sundowns will face Al Ahly, winner of Simba thanks to the away goal rule (2-2, 1-1). The first leg will take place on Sunday.
