It was the perfect start to the match for Sundowns who took the lead after only ten minutes when Lebohang Maboe unleased a powerful 20-yard strike which found the bottom corner of the net, 1-0.

SuperSport almost hit back five minutes later from a 24-yard free-kick, but Richard Boateng saw his set-piece superbly saved by Denis Onyango.

Gaston Sirino should really have doubled Sundowns’ lead in the 23rd minute when a low cross from the right found him completely unmarked inside the box, but he fluffed his shot inches wide from only eight-yards out.

In the 33rd minute the Brazilians did find their second goal when Maboe played Lyle Lakay into space 16-yards out and the he duly fired home from an acute angle on the left, 2-0.

SuperSport suffered a further set-back five minutes later when Boateng had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Onismor Bhasera.

The home side could not pull a goal back before the break with Sundowns leading 2-0.

Ten minutes into the second half Aubrey Modiba almost pulled a goal back for SuperSport when he unleashed a 20-yard thunderbolt, but his effort struck the post and bounced away from danger.

In the 66th minute, SuperSport did find a goal when Morgan Gould latched onto a left-sided free-kick from Modiba and spectacularly volleyed home from eight-yards out, 2-1.

SuperSport spent the last 20 minutes throwing players forward in search of a second goal, but they could not find the equaliser as Sundowns won 2-1.

Pitso Mosimane's men have moved up to third spot in the standings, three points behind league leaders Orlando Pirates.
