Mamelodi Sundowns in action

Onyango’s Mamelodi Sundowns also known as ‘The Brazilians’ picked up a valuable point away from home against table leaders Espérance Sportive de Tunis at the Olympic stadium in Rades, Tunisia.

This was Denis Onyango’s second clean sheet in the 2017 CAF Champions league campaign. The Ugandan shot stopper made clear saves to deny the hosts a scoring chance for the match to end in a goalless draw.

The vital point saw the defending African champions move to second spot on the four team log on five points, three points behind Esperance in Group C.
