Ratings: 

Denis Onyango: 6/10
 
Could have done better for Esperances' goal, but had a relatively quiet evening.
 
Anele Ngcongca: 6.5 /10
 
The full-back put in a solid showing on the right. He was solid defensively and did well going forward.
 
Thabo Nthethe: 6.5/10
 
The skipper for the night had a good game in the heart of the defence and did well to frustrate the Esperance attackers.
 
Motjeka Madisha: 6/10
 
Was solid for the first 40 minutes, but his night ended early due to injury.
 
Tebogo Langerman: 7/10
 
Langerman had a lot of joy going forward down the left flank and was equally impressive at the back.
 
Tiyandi Mabunda: 6.5 /10
 
With Sundowns dominating possession, Mabunda did well to stop any counter attacks. While he was comfortable when in possession of the ball.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 7/10
 
Vilakazi continues to impress in the deeper role. He got the equaliser for Sundowns and did well to help Sundowns maintain possession.
 
Themba Zwane: 6.5 /10
 
Zwane worked tirelessly in the middle of the park, but was a bit quiet in the final third.
 
Percy Tau: 7/10
 
Tau threatened the Esperance defence from the onset. He picked up the assist for Vilakazis' goal and was by far the liveliest player on the park.
 
Leonardo Castro: 5/10
 
The Colombian was restored to the line up, but endured a frustrating evening and missed a good chance in the second half.
 
Substitutions:
 
Bangaly Soumahoro: 5/10
 
The Big Ivorian looked comfortable for most of his cameo in the second half, but made a reckless challenge in the second half, which led to the penalty.
