Sundowns got off to the best start, as Sibusiso Vilakazi was brought down in the box by Abdi Banda. Motjeka Madisha stepped up and calmly converted to put The Brazilians in front in the second minute.

Thapelo Morena played a quick one-two with Thamba Zwane, before the full-back delivered a fierce cross across goal, which Virgil Vries punched away in the 20th minute.

Percy Tau put in a peach of a cross between defence and keeper which Zwane tapped in from close-range to make it 2-0 in the 27th minute.

Two minutes later, Tau cut in from the right hand side and took a shot, which fizzled past Vries and denied by the upright.

Sundowns were exciting in attack, creating chances. Morena’s cut-back was well met by Khama Billiat, who was denied by a goal-line clearance by the Baroka defence.

The remaining minutes saw the tempo of the game drop a bit, with Sundowns content with taking their 2-0 lead into the break, leaving Baroka with it all to do in the second half.

It took Sundowns two second-half minutes to increase their lead as Billiat played Tau through on goal, with the latter chipping over an on-rushing Vries to make it 3-0 to the Brazilians.

Baroka coach tried to change his side’s fortunes with a 54th minute substitution, bringing in Mpho Kgaswane in place of Goodman Mosele.

Billiat was at his menacing best this evening, as he played in a pin-point delivery behind the Baroka defence, with Tau flicking in from close-range to complete his brace, making it 4-0 to Sundowns with 17 minutes remaining on the clock.

Bakgaga finally carved open the Sundowns defence but, a poor finish with no pressure from Richard Matloga sailed over the bar in the 80th minute.

The visitors had no answers to the hosts’ onslaught as Sundowns saw off the remaining minutes to earn an emphatic victory. 

Here's how they lined up:

Sundowns: 14. Onyango, 4. Langerman, 29. Soumahoro (Arendse 35'), 27. Morena, 32. Madisha, 33. Billiat, 8. Kekana, 13. Mabunda, 11. Vilakazi, 18. Zwane, 22. Tau.

Baroka: 16. Vries, 6. Shaku, 31. Masenamela, 7. Chawapihwa, 24. Banda, 14. Mosele, 2. Kgoetyane, 19. Macha, 4 Madubanya, 8. Mdantsane, 17. Ngalande.
