Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi says they were confident Reyaad Pieterse would save Keagan Dolly's penalty.
Sundowns' wait to secure a double over Chiefs went on as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw at the FNB Stadium on Sunday evening.
"I think it was a very interesting match for the spectators, maybe short of goals because we didn't score enough goals but a very interesting game of football," Mngqithi told SuperSport after the game.
"Where I think it could have gone either way. First-half we didn't create too many chances although we played very well.
"Second-half we posed a threat and I believe we should have had at least one penalty as well or if not a penalty a free-kick. But it was not to be but a very good game of football after all," he said.
"No, there was not much they were doing even in the first-half, the mistake we were doing, when they cut the ball in midfield, because they are looking for those transitional moments to come out.
"So we were playing a lot of balls in the heart of midfield but the moment we started to go to the wide channels and have a double wide with Aubrey and Divine [Lunga], it stretched their team a little bit.

"And it demanded a little bit of defensive work from Keagan Dolly, from Khama Billiat, from [Lazarous] Kambole and that is why there was no longer a goal threat the way they were first-half.
"Because first-half they had a front three that was sitting always waiting to break out when they regain possession of the ball."
Chiefs had a big chance to score the winner after they were awarded a penalty in the dying minutes but Dolly's spot-kick was Pieterse.
"It was nice for people to know that Reyaad is very good on penalties because we were very confident as a team that he was going to save that penalty," he added.
"But I feel we also deserved to get one as well so we can see whether [Bruce] Bvuma was going to be able to save that one."
