Click through the gallery to see the individual ratings for the Sundowns players.

RATINGS:

Denis Onyango: 7/10
 
Onyango was very solid in goals and made some crucial saves to help Sundowns earn their first win in Group C.
 
Anele Ngcongca: 6.5/10
 
Ngcongca kept the discipline and shape well at the back. His experience went a long way in shoring up the Masandawana defence.
 
Wayne Arendse: 6.5/10
 
Arendse organised the side well in heart of defence and combined to good effect with Nascimento, although the duo did have lapse in concentration for the visitors' goal.
 
Ricardo Nascimento: 6.5/10
 
Nascimento’s ball winning ability was good on the night and he was key in helping Sundowns build from the back.
 
Tebogo Langerman: 7/10
 
Langerman was quiet in the early stages of the half but he did find opportunities in the latter stages, providing an extra body in the attack. He was also solid defensively.
 
Hlompho Kekana: 6.5/10
 
Kekana kept things simple in the middle of the park with some simple passing as Sundowns dominated, while he also managed to break down a couple Togo-Port attacks.
 
Oupa Manyisa: 6.5/10
 
Manyisa’s ball retention and distribution was impressive. He played with a lot freedom and combined well with the front three at times.
 
Themba Zwane: 7/10
 
Zwane was impressive going forward especially in the first stanza, combining well with Sirino for the first goal, although he was a bit quieter in the second half.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 8/10
 
Vilakazi’s  enjoyed a solid display on the night, as he linked up with Sirino and Brockie throughout his 70-minute cameo. He also scored what proved to be the winning goal with a classy finish.
 
Gaston Sirino: 8/10
 
Sirino was buzzing in the match and got the opener with a composed finish before he set up Vilakazi for the second goal. The Uruguayan was by far Sundowns' biggest threat on the night and proved a handful for the visitors.
 
Jeremy Brockie: 6.5/10
 
Brockie squandered a chance in the first half but his link up play with Vilakazi and the rest of midfield was impressive on the night as he kept the Togo-Port defence busy.
 
Substitutions:
 
Jose Ali Meza: 5/10
 
Meza helped Sundowns keep the ball in the last quarter of an hour, but never really showed what he was capable of.
 
Thapelo Morena: N/A
 
Did not play enough minutes to be rated.
