Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi does not want to let the recent dominance of Mamelodi Sundowns to cloud his judgement about what other teams can do, in the DStv Premiership Mamelodi Sundowns remains as the only side that is yet to concede a single goal and so far they have enjoyed a good run for themselves with recent back to back victories against their opponents. But can they continue be this dominant when they will clash against Golden Arrows in the MTN 8 semifinal match?
Mngqithi has admitted that his side might have all the best players they might need in their squad and on paper it appears as if like they also have an advantage against Lehlohonolo Seema's Golden Arrows. The good thing that Mngqithi has highlighted is that it will be a big mistake for anyone to undermine the capabilities of Golden Arrows, and as far as he is concerned the KZN based side is one team that you can never predict plus they have a smart coach on their corner.
The South African football universe will also remember that Manqoba Mngqithi was once upon a time the head coach of the very same team, but that was long time ago before Pitso Mosimane roped him in as his assistant coach. In this second leg match Golden Arrows should be expected to come hard at Mamelodi Sundowns because they will come to Lucas Moripe Stadium knowing that they need to score an away goal against Masandawana.
the DStv Premiership champions have an away goal advantage over Golden Arrows as they played to a 1-1 draw when they played in the home base of Golden Arrows. In the second leg match it's unlikely that Sundowns will play defensive football because that's just not how they play their ball game, they will try everything to score against Arrows, but they know very well that it won't be as easy as it seems on paper.
