South Africa Dstv Premiership side Mamelodi Sundowns completed 4-0 thrashing of Burundi side Bumamuru in CAF Champions League second preliminary round first leg.
Mamelodi Sundowns have one foot in the Caf Champions League group stage after an impressive win over the Burundian side.
Meanwhile, potent striker Peter Shalulile marked his return with a goal as he fired Downs’ fourth in the 80th minute. The Namibian forward, who is linked with a move away from Chloorkop, missed the club’s four games and was not available for an international friendly when his native Namibia played South Africa.
Downs are on course to make what would be a ninth straight appearance in the group stages, becoming the most regular Southern Africa participant in this competition. Meanwhile, head coach Rhulani Mokwena, whose side went a whole year without any blemish in the PSL, is in search of a third medal in continental football. Downs will host the Burundi side at the end of this month in the return-leg clash.
