Mamelodi Sundowns' players celebrate after scoring a goal during the CAF Championship final football match on October 15, 2016 at Atteridgville Stadium in Pretoria.

JOHANNESBURG – Mamelodi Sundowns are on the verge of making history.

If they win against Zamalek in the second-leg final of the CAF Champions League on Sunday afternoon, they become only the second South African outfit to conquer Africa.

The Brazilians will go into Sundays' final with a 3-0 first-leg lead.



Pirates were last crowned champions in 1995.

President Jacob Zuma has sent good wishes to Sundowns ahead of their final match against the Egyptian club.

"Mamelodi Sundowns carry the hopes of South Africa as they compete for the star of this competition in African football. We wish them well ahead of the match and are certain that they will bring the trophy home," said Zuma in a statement.
