Sundowns are set to play against Golden Arrows on Tuesday. If they win, they will enter the final round of fixtures with a two-point lead.

Sundowns are also no longer in CAF. As a result, McCarthy said he though they would be on top form, as they have more time to focus on the league, according to Sowetan Live. 

McCarthy added that he believed that Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane knew how to get the team to victory. He said that Sundowns have the upper hand, but added that Golden Arrows were a tough team and that they would not go down easily.
