Reading Time: < 1 minute

Mamelodi Sundowns have started their 2019/20 CAF Champions League campaign on a low note. The 2016 champions lost two-one on the road to AS Otoho d’Oyo of Congo Brazzaville.

The Brazilians conceded the first goal from the penalty spot, and suffered a major blow as they finished the first half with ten men after their captain Hlompho Kekana was shown a red card. Thapelo Morena scored the away goal for Sundowns.

Meanwhile National First Division side TS Galaxy narrowly beat Saint Lewis of Seychelles one-nil at the Mbombela Stadium, in the first leg of their Confederation Cup debut match.

Galaxy are the second side ever from South Africa’s second tier to play in the Confederation Cup after Black Leopards participated in 2011.
