Shell Helix Ultra Cup

Scenes As Chiefs Demolish Sundowns...

It may have only been a friendly, but it was a day to remember for Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday as they set about demolishing the reigning Absa Premiership champions...

Check out the scenes of victory in the gallery above!

The Glamour Boys named a strong XI for the clash with Mamelodi Sundowns in this year's Shell Helix Ultra Cup, and Ernst Middendorp reaped the rewards as they stormed into a 4-0 first half lead over the Brazilians at FNB Stadium, with Leonardo Castro (x3) and Khama Billiat haunting their former employer.

Pitso Mosimane did make some changes in the second half and Sundowns managed to pull a couple of goals back through Jose Ali Meza and Gaston Sirino, but it wasn't enough to retain the trophy as the spoils went the way of Amakhosi as captain, Willard Katsande, got his hands on the trophy for the first time.

It was a busy weekend for the Glamour Boys as they headed straight out again to partake in Sunday's Macufe Cup defence against Bloemfontein Celtic, however they weren't able to land another friendly trophy as they were beaten 2-0 by the hosts thanks to goals from Thato Lingwati and Tumisho Mogakwe.

Now Middendorp and his side must turn their attentions to winning a major piece of silverware for first time in several years as they go up against Cape Town City this coming weekend, with Benni McCarthy's side standing in the way of Chiefs and a place in the next round of the competition.

Despite the fact that their SHUC win over their title rivals on the weekend will give the current table-toppers a confidence boost going into their TKO clash, the coach and his players will know that it will count for nought if they miss out on yet another trophy following their failure to qualify for the MTN8 competition that was won by SuperSport United earlier this month.
