Overall, Sundowns have scored seven goals and conceded none after four games leading to thre final on Sunday.


SC Casablanca forced Athletico FC to a 1-1 draw in the first game of the tournament on Novemer 5 as N’Guessan Koffi’s 81st minute goal canceled out Esperence Agbo’s opener for the host.

The finalists crossed path in the group stage as Melinda Kgadiete’s goal was crucial to hand Sundowns a 1-0 win over the second best team in Morocco.

As we awaits the final match, it is worthy to note that only two teams have been able to score against Sundowns since the inception of the tournament in 2021 (Bayelsa Queens and AS FAR FC). With this, SC Casablanca will have to look for means of breaking down the South Africans defence.
