    The Brazilians maintained their unbeaten streak in the Absa Premiership this season after securing a 2-1 victory over Amakhosi in their first game of 2019.

    Sundowns now occupy fourth place on the league standings with 25 points after 13 games, which has seen them claim six wins, seven draws and no defeats thus far.

    Mosimane admits that it’s not easy to secure maximum points at Amakhosi, but insists that he will gladly accept the three points against a ‘difficult’ Chiefs side.

    ‘It’s a big game, yes, but the three points were very, very, very big, because I know not many teams will come here [to FNB Stadium] and win,’ Mosimane told the media.

    ‘It’s a big three points. Last year we were here, and I told you the point that we got here was big, and some of you were not happy. I told you it would come in handy at the end, and maybe you forgot what happened last year.’
