A tough April awaits Mamelodi Sundowns as they chase domestic and continental glory


Now, in an attempt to be crowned domestic and continental kings for a second time in a space of three years, Sundowns will yet again be in and out of the country, in planes and hotels.

The PSL on Thursday announced that four of Sundowns' domestic matches had to be changed due to their participation in the CAF Champions League.

Their hectic April starts on Monday with a clash against Absa Premiership title rivals Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium (19h30), before they take on Egyptian giants Al Ahly in Tshwane on April 6, a first leg quarterfinals clash.

The Brazilians will then travel to Cairo for the second leg which will be played on April 13.Four days later Sundowns will take on SuperSport United in the Tshwane derby.

This will be followed by a trip to Polokwane to face Baroka FC on April 20, just three days after the Tshwane Derby.

Three days after playing Baroka, on April 23, Sundowns are scheduled to host Chippa United at Loftus Stadium.

Should Mosimane's men progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League, they will play the first leg away from home on the weekend of April 26 and 27. The second leg will be played on May 3 or 4.

Before the second leg, the eight-time PSL champions will take on Black Leopards in Thohoyandou on May 1. Then their penultimate league match will be against Golden Arrows on May 7. Their final league match, on May 11 will be against Free State Stars in Bethlehem.
