“They did well to control the game. The other thing is that they were able to adapt well despite pressure from Vita. I was impressed with how they were not allowing Vita an opportunity to play especially in the second half,” Mohlala told Goal.
The 3-1 victory revived their hopes of advancing to the knockout stages after their goalless draw with Ethopian outfit St George in their first Group C match.
“It wasn’t surprising because we all know what Sundowns is capable of and the fact that they have their own fans in Africa made things a bit easy for them,” he said.
“This is the second year, they will be playing football without resting in pre-season. Whatever they have been going through, the coach has also gone through that," he added.
“What I can say is that they do have strength to go all the way and do it again. I don’t see anything stopping them from reaching the semi-finals, but they need to be consistent with their performances,” Mohlala concluded.
