Sundowns Humbled By Celtic At Home

Absa Premiership
Halftime: Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 Bloemfontein Celtic
Date: 16 March 2016
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
Bloemfontein Celtic put in an impressive display at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, as they recorded a 3-1 win over Mamelodi Sundowns.
Celtic got off to an encouraging start and nearly broke the deadlock inside the opening five minutes with Musa Nyatama and Lyle Lakay going close.
The visitors then took the lead in the sixth minute as Dumisani Zuma did well to pick out Lakay, who lobbed the on-rushing Denis Onyango.
Sundowns struggled to deal with the pace of the Celtic attack on the counter, although they looked threatening from set-pieces with Leonardo Castro and Wayne Arendse heading wide after 20 minutes.
The hosts were then awarded a penalty in the 28th minute when Khama Billiat was brought down in the box. However, Teko Modise stepped up and saw his spot-kick saved by Patrick Tigyemb.
Sundowns continued to dominate but it was Celtic who doubled their advantage five minutes before the halftime break, as Fiston Abdul Razak latched onto a pass from Thapelo Morena, before slotting past Onyango.
Celtic made it 3-0 five minutes into the second half, as Lantshane Phalane rifled home a superb effort into the bottom corner from 20-yards out.
Pitso Mosimane opted to re-shuffle his pack after the goal, as he introduced Siyanda Zwane and Anthony Laffor.
However, Sundowns reduced the deficit in the 67th minute, as Wayne Arendse rose well to head home Hlompho Kekana's cross from the left.
The Brazilians, however, ended the game with 10 men after Kekana was shown his second yellow card of the game in the 90th minute.
Here's how they line-up:
Mamelodi Sundowns: 36. Onyango, 5. Mbekile, 4. Langerman, 2. Nthethe, 6. Arendse, 19. Mashaba, 10. Modise, 7. Dolly, 25. Castro, 8. Kekana, 20. Billiat
Bloemfontein Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 11. Jooste, 16. Fransman, 27. Ndengane, 5. Letlabika, 8. Phalane, 7. Lakay, 12. Morena, 17. Abdoul, 20. Matuka, 34. Zuma.
