Mamelodi Sundowns now have 10 points after four matches, with all three of the other teams in Group A – Al Ahly, Al-Hilal and Al-Merrikh – on four points after as many matches.

Mamelodi Sundowns to face Al-Hilal next

For Mamelodi Sundowns not to reach the quarter-finals they would need to lose both their remaining matches to the two Sudanese sides Al-Hilal and Al-Merrikh – and have Al Ahly do exactly the same against the same opponents.

An unlikely scenario!
