Pitso Mosimane kept faith with Reyaad Pieterse in goals, despite the shot-stopper making a couple mistakes in the 3-3 draw with AmaZulu over the weekend.

The Sundowns defence also came under fire in the last encounter, but even with the inclusion of Madisha for Wayne Arendse, Knox Mutizwa and Lerato Lamola continued to cause problems.

Toni Silva was one of Sundowns' better attackers on the night, and he went close to putting his side ahead after 31 minutes, but his first-time volley sailed into the side-netting.

However, just as it looked as if the sides would go into the break level, Lebohang Maboe popped up in the box to rifle home a left-footed strike to put Sundowns in the lead.

After a quiet opening to the second half, Clinton Larsen opted a for a double change as Wayde Jooste and Sandile Zuke were introduced, while Sundowns threw on 
 
Arrows had not secured a win since their opening day triumph over the Maritzburg United and the second half was clear evidence as to why, as they struggled to carve out chances despite seeing more of the ball in the second half.
 
The tempo of the game fizzled out as the half went on, as neither side showed any attacking intent, with Sundowns looking happy with the one goal lead heading in to the closing stages.
 
That was the trend for the remainder of the half as Sundowns held on to claim three points for only the second time in this campaign.
 
Arrows, meanwhile, remain without a home victory in the 2018-2019 season as they extend their winless run to five matches in the league.

Arrows: 32. Gumede, 29. Sibisi, 21. Mngwengwe, 5. Mazava, 13. Lunga, 24. Molefe, 26. Phiri, 22. Sibeko, 4. Venter, 41. Lamola, 18. Mutizwa.
