The Brazilians went crashing out of South Africa's top knockout trophy, the Nedbank Cup competition on Saturday

Mamelodi Sundowns were upset 2-1 by Chippa United in Nelson Mandela Bay on the weekend.

Spying on an opposing team's line-ups, formations and training tactics has been a big talking point in world football lately.

This is after former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe's old team, Leeds United courted controversy. Leeds' current coach Marcelo Bielsa was at the centre of a spying storm and then admitted that he's found information on opponents throughout his career.

There's been a debate on whether Bielsa and Leeds should be punished. Some former professionals believe the training grounds were always open for the opposition to watch their tactics, while others believe that Bielsa crossed the line.

In this video, you can watch Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane go through his whole drawing board with the media before the match against Chippa United. Mosimane seems to know how to stop Chippa United but that's because he's done his homework.

Victorious Chippa United player, Mark Mayambela has commented on Twitter that 'there are no secrets in football'. You can also watch a video by Sundowns' official Twitter underlining their line-up and formations before the game.

However, there's a difference between knowing the opposition's plan before kickoff and a day in advance.

In the interview below Mosimane is asked about spying in football but his answer makes light of the topic that's been discussed with controversy in England. What do you think?

Either way, Mosimane's plan on the drawing board couldn't stop Chippa United from winning on the day.
