It is a rescheduled fixture which will take place in the neutral location of Tanzania. Sundowns were denied entry into Algeria which is why the match was postponed.
It was supposed to take place this past Tuesday (23 February 2021). Now it will happen on Sunday (27 February 2021).
It has affected Sundowns’ fixture schedule too. Their Nedbank Cup fixture against Polokwane City has been moved to the 10th of March.
A date has not yet been scheduled for their fixture against Stellenbosch.
Themba Zwane has formed a formidable partnership with Peter Shalulile, Kermit Erasmus and Gaston Sirino. The quadruple are one of the deadliest combinations in African football.
Sundowns are currently unbeaten in the DSTV Premiership. They also have developed a big lead at the top of the table to their closest competitors.
“The team has been unbeaten and shows that we are doing something well.” Zwane tells the club website.
“We are one team, we fight for one another and we push all the time we play. We have quality players that are here to do the job and we can do it
“The combinations start at training as we push ourselves hard and try to communicate and understand each other. We motivate each other all the time, you can see when we score we go to the corner and celebrate together and that shows it is about the team.
“It shows that we are in this together, it doesn’t matter who scores but as long as the team wins” Zwane adds on.
Earlier in the season assistant coach Steve Komphela tweeted that he has an on-going be with Themba Zwane. He said that he does 50 push ups for every goal that Zwane scores.

“Those are the things that bring the spirit to the team and brightens the mood. Whenever you show unity everything works out well.
“You know we have a couple of new players and by doing the jokes we want to ease up the mood and make them feel welcomed and part of the team. When it comes to work, we always work hard and play no games” Zwane concluded.
