CAF : Chicken Inn dispose lethal Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns suffered a 1 – 0 loss to Chicken Inn in their CAF Champions league match at Luveve Stadium, in Bulawayo

imagesThe Brazilians, currently nine points clear at the summit of the Premiership table in South Africa, conceded a goal in the 36th minute of the encounter in what would be the only score on the day.

Chicken Inn are currently still off season and many would have thought that it will be a walk in the park for Sundowns are currently they are in sublime form in the PSL.

Obadiah Tarumbwa had the first real chance for the hosts in the 17th minute, but was wayward with his attempt which sailed into the crowd.

And it would be nine minutes before the break when the hosts would vault into the lead. Mischeck Katsvairo’s powerful shot rocketed into the back of the net to make it 1-0 to the home side.

In the second half, Sundowns controlled proceedings in terms of possession but despite their best efforts they could not find an equaliser, as they began their Champions League campaign in disastrous fashion.

Downs made a lot of changes to their regular lineup and left out their key player in Khama Billiat. The Zimbabwean born player would have loved to shown his our country men what he is made off.

The CBD combination was dealt a big blow.
