Soccer Laduma selects the six best and four worst performers, following Mamelodi Sundowns' 2-1 win over Cape Town City in the Nedbank Cup.

Percy Tau: 7/10

Tau linked up with his fellow attackers on the day and was rewarded with a goal in the second half.

Khama Billiat: 7/10

Returned to the line up and was a threat from the onset as he bagged the assist for Tau's goal, while he also set up a number of other chances.

Wayne Arendse: 6.5/10

Arendse put in a solid showing in the heart of the City defence and did well to frustrate Patosi.

Ricardo Nascimento: 6.5/10

He could do nothing about the deflection for Ralani's goal, but he was impressive overall alongside Arendse.

Surprise Ralani: 7.5/10

Ralani was City's best attacking outlet on the pitch. He was a handful for Morena and he also managed to get on the score-sheet.

Roland Putsche: 6/10

City dominated for large parts of the game and Putsche was key that, although he did miss a big chance in the first half.


Gaston Sirino: 4/10

Not what we are used to seeing from the Bolivian, who was sloppy on the ball at times.

Ayanda Patosi: 4/10

Deployed upfront for City but he found it tough against Nascimento and Arendse.

Robyn Johannes: 4/10

The City skipper looked shaky at times and was often bailed out by Sage Stephens or Fielies.

Edmilson Dove: 4/10

A number of Sundowns' attacks came down Edmilson's flank, as the likes of Tau and Billiat had a lot of joy down the left.

I think Tau is selfish sometimes, there were times he could have played Billiat. Now I see why Billiat is leaving nxa

I personally think that Tau deserves more than 7/10 and Hlompo should also be included amongst the highly rated. the commentators were unfair on Serino and you Editor are following suit. Serino performed very well on the day. that's just my opinion

Tau was like matlaba playing against ndoro. Tau had balls he could pass to a fellow Downers to score. Serero does the same.

So Mr Editor,according to you,Khama Billiat created Patosi's goal? How so? To make matters worse,Patosi isnt the one that scored City's goal. Stop eating too many easter eggs
