However only the Egyptian club's most optimistic supporters would've believed they could turn this result around.
Masandawana won the first leg with a majestic 5-0 performance in South Africa last week.
They just needed to keep their heads in Egypt and make sure they defended well. Walid Azarou scored the only goal of the game in the 68th minute but Sundowns still won the tie comfortably.
