South Africa and 2016 CAF Champions League Winners Mamelodi Sundowns ease past Seychelles Island part-timers La Passe FC on 15-1 aggregate after defeating them by 8-1 at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium in Pretoria to qualify to the group stages of the CAF Champions League for a record 9th times.

29-year-old Thapelo Morena opens the scoreline just 8 minutes into the game.

Madagascar international Florent Rajaoniasy shocked the Brasilians as he scored a classic goal for La Passe FC to cancel the lead in the 38th minute but the equalizer did not last long as Cassius Mailula made it to just a minute later in the 39th minute.

Clifford once again made it three for Sundowns just a minute before halftime.

After recess, the Pretoria side continued their dominance as Gift Motupa made it four for the Brasilians in the 70th minute.


Six minutes later, Dominico Haashim scored on his return to action, however, Neo Maema got the 6th goal for the Brasilians in the 78th minute, two minutes after the 5th goal.

Collins Mailula got his hattrick in the 86th minute and Gift Motupa made it eighth by scoring his personal second goal of the game two minutes into the additional time.

The Brasilians defeated La Passe 7-0 a week ago at Loftus Road.

In 2019, Sundowns defeated Cote d ‘or also from Seychelles Island by 16-1 aggregate which still stands as the biggest victory in CAF Champions league history.

Ever since Sundowns won the competition in 2016, they have qualified for at least group stages of all CAF Champions League competitions since then.
