Sundowns Move Seven Points Clear

Absa Premiership Report: Cape Town City v Mamelodi Sundowns 02 February 2018

Absa Premiership 

Result: Cape Town City 0-1 Mamelodi Sundowns

Date: 02 January 2018

Venue: Athlone Stadium

Mamelodi Sundowns moved seven points clear at the top of the Absa Premiership after defeating Cape Town City 1-0 at the Athlone Stadium.
 
 
The Citizens got the first real chance in the 10th minute when Thamsanqa Mkhize got to the by-line, but Denis Onyango made an intervention to cut out the inviting cross.
 
City were nearly embarrassed and punished four minutes later after a horrible back-pass let in Jeremy Brockie left alone with Sage Stephens, but the shot-stopper threw his body on the line to put off the New Zealander from finding the back of the net.
 
Lyle Lakay could have opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, but his strike on the left side of the box was parried away by Onyango at the near post.
 
Mkhize had a chance to break the deadlock on the half-hour mark with a free header at the back post but he was off the mark.
 
Onyango was lucky not to be sent off five minutes before halftime after taking out Thabo Nodada in a one-on-one situation just outside the box as the last man of defence. He only got away with a yellow card.
 
Teko Modise took the resulting free-kick in a dangerous area but he skied his shot over the bar and it ended all square at the break.
 
Nodada did not return for the second half after the clash with Onyango and was replaced by Ayanda Patosi.
 
Khama Billiat broke the deadlock three minutes into the second half with a thumping half-volley inside the box after Percy Tau forced his way into the left side of the box.
 
Patosi had a glorious opportunity to equalise seven minutes later after receiving a cross from Lakay, but his half-volley was easily dealt with by Onyango.
 
Masandawana made their first change on the hour-mark by withdrawing Brockie for Motjeka Madisha while City brought in Bradley Ralani for Sibusiso Masina five minutes later.
 
The hosts  pressurised Mosimane’s men with 15 minutes remaining on the clock but clear-cut chances were few and far between.
 
Patosi nearly equalised with a long-range strike from 30-yards five minutes from time but Onyango made a save from the strike that was dipping.
 
Masandawana ran down the clock in the closing minutes, while Robyn Johannes got his second yellow card in stoppage time and was sent off as the visitors held on for the win.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
City: 32. Stephens, 2. Mkhize, 16. Johannes, 5. Dove, 12. Fielies, 26. Nodada (Patosi 46'), 19. Putsche (Akosah-Bempah 82'), 7. Lakay, 13. Modise, 24. Masina (Ralani 66'), 30. Martin.
 
Subs: 1. Walters, 3. Mngonyama, 6. Seedat, 4. Kobola, 10. Patosi, 13. Akosah-Bempah, 21. Ralani.
 
Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 27. Morena, 4. Langerman, 16. Nascimento, 29. Bangaly, 13. Mabunda, 33. Billiat (Ngoma 72'), 7. Manyisa, 19. Brockie (Madisha 62'), 22. Tau, 11. Vilakazi (Zwane 46').
 
Subs: 1. Mweene, 25. Ngoma, 38. Zulu, 8. Kekana, 18. T.Zwane, 26. Sirino, 32. Madisha.

If you want to know people who are hurt by Sundowns actions ask Chiefs and Pirates fans kikikiki kwaaaaaaa. They are hurt by a team that has less than 150 fans yet there are millions supporting two useless teams.
