Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns face a mountain to climb after losing to Al Ahly in a first-leg CAF Champions League quarter-final.
Coach Pitso Mosimane placed Motjeka Madisha in a makeshift right-back position while Thapelo Morena and Anele Ngconcga remain out injured.
The Egyptians nearly grabbed a fifth-minute opener but Denis Onyango pulled a due save. Wayne Arendse was shortly denied a crucial away goal just a few minutes later.
Kabo Yellow’s Gaston Sirino forced a great save from El-Shenawy after a lovely shot from a distance.
The Egyptian giants at last found the opener through Ali Maaloul on 55 minutes - before Aliou Badji made it 2-0 on 65 minutes.

Sundowns will now be searching for a 3-0 win in Pretoria this Saturday at 15:00.
