The Brazilians, who have an advantage of a 3-0 lead heading into the second leg, face Egyptian giants Zamalek in the second leg of the Caf Champions League in Egypt on Sunday.

McCarthy, who was part of the Downs team that played the final in 2001 only to lose to Al Ahly, says Masandawana have the team to do the job.

“Sundowns can score away from home, I have a good feeling that they will score two goals. I don’t care how many Zamalek will score,” said McCarthy.

Pitso Mosimane and his charges departed to Egypt last night (Tuesday) to start preparations for their most important fixture thus far. The match will be played Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria.
