Reneilwe Letsholonyane: 7/10
The hard-working player was the only real shining light in the SuperSport midfield. He worked tirelessly to win possession and played some great through balls which saw his teammates into space.
Aubrey Modiba: 7/10
Despite only coming on at the end of the fist half Modiba had a real impact on the game. His speed, energy and passing ability really gave the Sundowns defence problems. He struck the post with a ferocious shot at the start of the second and created his side’s first goal with a pin-point cross.
Thapelo Morena: 7/10
The Sundowns right wing-back was at his best with his pace down the flank in attack. Not only did he defend well, but he created numerous scoring chances for his teammates with his crosses into the box.
Lyle Lakay: 7/10
The Sundowns left wing-back was performed his defensive duties well and also got forward to assist in attack. He provided some dangerous crosses into the box and also scored his side’s second goal.
Themba Zwane: 7/10
The Sundowns midfielder created a lot of problems for the SuperSport defence with his pace and passing ability. He used his speed to attack down the flanks and his passing was also pin-point which often saw him putting teammates into space.
Lebohang Maboe: 8/10
The Sundowns attacking midfielder was at his best when pushing forward, using his pace and precise passing to cause problems for SuperSport. He scored his side’s opening goal with a powerful struck 20-yard shot which found the corner of the net and created his side’s second goal for Lakay.
Bongani Khumalo: 5/10
The central defender struggled to deal with the pace of the Sundowns attack and often got caught out of position. He was also the one to play Lakay onside for Sundowns’ second goal.
Phumlani Ntshangase: 5/10
The SuperSport midfielder was certainly not at his best and struggled to get on the ball. When he was in possession, he gave the ball away cheaply with some poor passing. He was even substituted before half time
Evans Rusike: 5/10
The SuperSport striker was never really in the game and saw very little of the ball. He was no real threat in attack and substituted early in the second half.
Gaston Sirino: 5/10
The Sundowns player wasted possession time and again. If he wasn’t giving the ball away with poor passing, then he was wasting decent goal scoring chances with some woeful shooting.
