Mosimane: We’re riding on the momentum from PSL
The PSL champs now require just one point from their 2 remaining games to book their spot in the last 4.
JOHANNESBURG - Mamelodi Sundowns are on an upward trajectory and it seems no team at the moment has the answers for them particularly those in their Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions' League group.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions have beaten ES Setif of Algeria, Nigerian champions Enyimba and Egyptian giants Zamalek so far in Group B and are on the cusp on qualifying for the semifinals of the Champions League.

The only setback they've encountered so far was that the three points they picked up against Setif were withdrawn by CAF, after the Algerian side was disqualified from the tournament because of their fans' unruliness.
That hasn't deterred Coach Pitso Mosimane and his charges, as they put two goals past Enyimba and Zamalek to collect six points and top the group.
Sundowns now require just one point from their two remaining games against the Nigerians and Egyptians to book their spot in the last four.
Mosimane has attributed his team's incredible run in Africa to the momentum they've carried from the league.
"We are riding on the momentum of the league, we are just flowing with what happened in the league. We are just in that whirlpool, a beautiful whirlpool. We just keep going and it's a very good dream, which we hope we don't wake up from. So, let's keep dreaming the beautiful dream."
The PSL champions will welcome Zamalek in Atteridgeville on 27 July before travelling to Enyimba at the end of August.
