BEST:

Nduduzo Sibiya: 7/0
 
The winger certainly made the public take note. He was constant threat on the break and he scored a fine individual goal.
 
Motjeka Madisha: 6.5/10
 
Despite being dummied for the goal, Madisha put in a solid showing in the heart of the Sundowns and covered Nthethe on a few occasions.
 
Lerato Lamola: 6/10
 
Despite Arrows not having a lot of the ball, Lamola did well to stretch the Sundowns defence on the break and he worked hard off the ball.
 
Hlompho Kekana: 6/10
 
The Sundowns skipper ensured his side saw most of the ball and he certainly stamped his authority in the middle of the park.
 
Trevor Mathiane: 7/10
 
Mathiane was a rock in the heart of the Arrows defence and played a key role in helping his side keep a clean sheet.
 
Nkanyiso Mngwengwe: 7/10
 
Much like Mathiane, Mngwenge put in a solid shift in central defence and did well to frustrate the likes of Percy Tau and Khama Billiat.
 
WORST:
 
Percy Tau: 5/10
 
The Sundowns did not have the best of games by his standards. He got into a lot good positions, but was let down by his decision-making.
 
Mzkiyise Mashaba: 5/10
 
Given a rare start, and played on the wing. However, he failed to provide any attacking threat down the left.
 
Thapelo Morena: 5/10
 
Squandered a very good chance in the first and his decision-making was not up to par.
 
Teko Modise: 5/10
 
Replaced the injured Mabunda, but he hardly offered anything in the final third for Sundowns.
