The 2019 CAF Champions League, after more games, showed that by the end of the championship everything is possible. Last weekend, the Mamelodi Sundowns played against Wydad Casablanca.

In the away game in Morocco, in a rather hostile environment, one of the best players was Motjeka Madisha. His play impressed the most on defense. This young player has been playing great all season. Many consider this to be one of the better matches of the 24-year-old player.

Probably the most impressive part of his game was when he won four of his five aerial duels. More than 70% of the total number of challenges is considered. Madisha won two fights in the match while the Downs maintained their second consecutive roster.

There is another player who has been able to impress Coach Pitso Mosimane’s match as well as fans. Andile Jali played in a 4-2-2-2 formation near Hlompho Kekana. He scored 11 tackles during the match. No other player in the match has won more than four games. Andile had the ball in possession 76 times, more than any other Sundowns player.

Andile Jali had 24 passes forwards, 11 more than Hlompho Kekana. Jali played nine touchdowns in the last third of the game. Between the 15th minute and the half time, he had 29 possessions in 30 minutes. No player from Mamelodi Sundowns was as involved in the game as Andile. Motjeka and Andile made the most of the opportunity at the match.

Both players did a great job this season. They hope to keep the form in match against Maritzburg United. A match in the Telkom Knockout finals will show whether other players will be ready.

Coach Pitso Mosimane can be happy with the players he has on his team. In addition to Gaston Sirino, which has become irreplaceable over time, there are more and more players who can help win the championship. With a great team, the results for psl will be more than good. After a few good games, Mamelodi Sundowns will still be the club many on betway South Africa are going to choose.
