Player Ratings: AS Vita v Sundowns

Soccer Laduma rates the individual performances of the Mamelodi Sundowns players, following their 1-0 loss to AS Vita.
 
Mamelodi Sundowns: 
 
Denis Onyango: 6
 
The Ugandan shot-stopper was hardly called upon in the 90 minutes, although he did produce a good save to deny Morrison in the 53rd minute. While, he was helpless for the late goal.
 
Ramahlwe  Mphahlele: 6
 
The Sundowns full-back certainly held his own on the defensive end of the pitch. Although, he struggled to get forward due to Vita's dominance.
 
Tebogo Langerman: 6
 
Similarly to Mphahele, was solid at left full-back and frustrated the opposition winger on numerous occasions.
 
Thabo Nthethe: 6
 
Solid for the majority of the 90 minutes, until stoppage time as he and the rest of the defence backed off to allow Morrison to shoot in the build-up to the winner.
 
Wayne Arsendse: 6
 
Certainly held his own alongside Nthethe throughout the game but made the mistake of backing off in stoppage time to allow Vita to score.
 
Asavela Mbekile: 6
 
Played at right-back for most of the season, but was deployed in the middle of the park and he hardy put a foot wrong for the Brazilians.
 
Hlompho Kekana: 6
 
He was solid defensively and certainly made his presence felt, although he could not get the attacking side of his game going, as Vita saw most of the ball.
 
Mzikayise Mashaba: 6
 
Deployed on the left flank but hardly offered anything going forward, although his defensive work did not go unnoticed.
 
Keagan Dolly: 6.5
 
Given a free role as the number 10, he looked threatening in the first half. While, he did squander a chance to hand Sundowns the lead in the second half.
 
Themba Zwane: 6
 
Hardly had the chance to show his offensive abilities due to Vita's dominance, but he did well to track back in the second half.
 
Leonardo Castro: 5
 
Not the best of games for the Colombian forward, who cut a frustrated figure at times and he was eventually replaced on the hour mark.
 
Substitutes:
 
Cuthbert Malajila: 5
 
Replaced Castro in the 60th minute but failed to make the desired impact. Although, the Zimbabwean did have service to work with.
 
Siyanda Zwane: NA
 
Not on the field long enough to receive a rating.
