Al-Ahly club is preparing to face the South African Sun Downs team next Saturday, in the first leg of the 2020-2021 CAF Champions League quarter-finals, at Al-Salam Stadium.

The South African Mamelodi Sun Downs team, led by Mangoba Mangithi, is armed with a number of distinguished players within its squad, and it is one of the elements with physical and technical capabilities that should be closely monitored by Al-Ahly coach Mosimane.

We show you the most dangerous and important 5 players in the South African Sun Downs ranks, and they are ..

Themba Zwani

He is 31 years old, is strong in the midfield of Sun Downs, and is fluent in moving the ball quickly offensively in the middle of the opponent's court, which Mangithi relies on mainly in his matches.

He was injured during the match between Sun Downs and Maritzburg United in the local league, which was held last Wednesday.

But soon he returned to the accounts of the technical staff of Sun Downs, after getting the green light from the side of the medical system.

Wazzani played 31 games for Sun Downs in all competitions, scoring 12 goals and 5 assists.

Gaston Sereno

He is 30 years old, a right wing with all the offensive characteristics, where he can create opportunities and dangerous balls and penetrate into the penalty area thanks to his skills and technical capabilities.

He played 22 games with Sun Downs in all competitions, scored 5 goals and 3 assists, and Sereno is still a goal by Betsu Mosimane, his former coach and current Al-Ahly coach.

Peter Chaloulayel

He is 27 years old, Sun Downs' top scorer in the domestic league with 11 goals, and the third scorer in the tournament list.

Shaloulayel played 34 games in all competitions with Sun Downs, scoring 18 goals and 8 assists.

Thapello Morena

The 27-year-old, a right winger within the ranks of Sun Downs, is one of the main elements of the team in all competitions this season.
