Zamalek of Egypt can draw comfort from the past as they seek to overturn a 3-0 deficit Sunday in the second leg of the CAF Champions League final against Mamelodi Sundowns.Sundowns fell to Al Ahly in their only previous appearance 15 years ago and the same Cairo club defeated Orlando Pirates in the 2013 final.Captain Shikabala was largely anonymous on the left flank until replaced 10 minutes into the second half with Zamalek three goals behind.With $1.5 million (1.38 million euros) and a place at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan going to the overall winners, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is taking nothing for granted.Mosimane must make at least one change to the first-leg starting side with Ivorian colossus Bangaly Soumahoro set to replace suspended center-back Wayne Arendse.Sundowns hope to become the first club eliminated during a CAF club competition to win it.
