Mamelodi Sundowns thrashed Al Ahly 5-0 in the CAF Champions League quarterfinal first-leg match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Tshwane on Saturday afternoon.

The South African champions look set for the next stage with a five-goal cushion.

They will highly be motivated going into next weekend second-leg clas in Egypt.

The Brazilians started the match brightly with their front three, Themba Zwane, Gaston Sirino and Lebohang Maboe, looking lively.

The hosts deservedly broke the deadlock 14 minutes into the game and it was Zwane who opened the scoring.

South Africa international beat Al Ahly goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy to make it 1-0 to Sundowns, with Tebogo Langerman grabbing an assist.

Sundowns registered four more goals without any reply from their visitors.

Goals from Wayne Arendse 24′, Ricardo Nascimento 47′, Sirino 62′, and Mahlambi 82′ were more than enough to slap their opponent.
