Denis Onyango’s Mamelodi Sundowns are the 2017 CAF Super Cup champions after nailing a 1-0 win over DR Congo’s TP Mazembe on Saturday.
Ricardo Nascimento was the day’s hero for the Brazilians
as he converted an 83rd minute penalty to give Pitso Mosimane’s side a deserving victory after a dominant display at the Loftus Versveld stadium.
Mamelodi Sundowns becomes the second South African team to lift the Super Cup following the 1996 success of Orlando Pirates when they beat JS Kabylie of Algeria.
On top of lifting the trophy, the South African side took home $ 100,000 while TP Mazembe won $ 75,000.
