CAF CL: Onyango’s Sundowns Pick Healthy First Leg Win Over Zamalek

Ugandan goalkeeper Dennis Onyango is on course to make history with his South African club Mamelodi Sundowns after a fine performance that saw the team thump Egyptian champions Zamalek SC 3-0 in the first leg of the 2016 CAF Champions League Final  played at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

Sundowns had defeated the Egyptians twice in the group stages and needed to get an edge in the first leg before they embark on a daunting journey to Alexandra for the second leg at the Borg El Arab Stadium on Sunday 30th.

Anthony Laffor, ask Tebogo Langerman and an own goal gave the South Africans the advantage in a match where Keeper Dennis Onyango was largely quiet.

Liberian international Anthony Laffor scored the opening goal just after the half hour mark from Hlompho Kekana good pass.

Tebogo Langerman added the second goal nine minutes later with a heavy shot into the far corner from close range to double the lead into the break time.

The Brazilians returned from the breather with a mission to kill off the tie as early and their efforts paid off two minutes later when Islam Gamal deflected Percy Tau’s sneaking shot into his own net.

Zamalek now need to score more than four unanswered goals if they are to win the trophy.
