EmilIano Tade - 8/10
The Argentine starred from the onset, as he assisted with both their goals and was solid in all areas of the pitch.
Lebohang Maboe - 7/10
Came back to haunt his former club with the second goal and along with Tade was menacing up front especially in the opening minutes.
Denis Onyango - 8/10
Undoubtedly kept Sundowns in the game, especially towards halftime with a number of big saves from all areas but was eventually beaten in the second stanza.
Alan Kateregga - 7/10
The Ugandan played his heart out as he denied Thapelo Morena his usual overlapping runs with countless attacking interplays.
Fortune Makaringe - 7/10
Bossed the middle of the park, as he showed little respect to seasoned campaigners Hlompho Kekana and Tiyani Mabunda and was rewarded with a goal.
Yannick Zakri - 7/10
Zakri started off the bench, but after his 27th minute entry completely changed their attacking dynamism which had their visitors back-paddling much of the game.
Thapelo Morena - 5/10
The fullback was extremely off colour as he failed to get any attack from the back going, while struggling defensively.
Siyanda Xulu - 5/10
Failed to lead from the front and was caught ball-watching much of the time, as seen in the both the goals that found their net.
Thabiso Kutumela - 4/10
Couldn’t get anything going, as the Brazilians easily tracked his every move while he struggled the physically presence of a certain Ricardo Nascimento.
Gaston Sirino - 4/10
Didn’t finish the game, and until the 52nd minute, was a complete passenger followed with a careless dismissal on 60 minutes.
