Mamelodi Sundowns vs Petro de Luanda Prediction

Mamelodi Sundowns are heavily fancied to overturn their first-leg deficit in front of their fans. The Buccaneers are likely to start the game on the front foot from the get-go, while Petro de Luanda might sit back to protect their lead.

Another high-scoring game can be expected, but Sundowns should claim a comfortable victory with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 Petro de Luanda.
