Date: 16 December 2017

Mamelodi Sundowns extended their unbeaten run to seven, with another impressive 4-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at Loftus stadium on Saturday, as they boosted their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership.

Sundowns controlled the early flow of play, but the first real threat on goal went the way of Celtic in the sixth minute, when Victor Letsoala beat two defenders, before seeing his powerful 16-yard shot skim the top of the crossbar.

The Brazilians’ first real scoring chance came in the 19th minute, when Thokozani Sekotlong played Percy Tau into space 16-yards out, but his thunderous effort struck the post and bounced away from danger.

In the 32nd minute Hlompho Kekana spotted Partick Tignyemb, off his goalline and the Sundowns man attempted to beat him from 70-yards out, but the Celtic keeper got back to make a comfortable save.

Seven minutes later a mistake in defence by Motjeka Madisha, allowed Letsoalo to find himself one-on-one with the Sundowns keeper, but his 14-yard effort went wide of the target from an acute angle on the left.

The half ended 0-0.

Two minutes into the second half, Sundowns took the lead when Sekotlong powerfully headed home a pin-point corner-kick from Tau, 1-0.

The Brazilians doubled their lead in the 54th minute, when Tiyani Mabunda found the corner of the net with a precise 20-yard shot, 2-0.

Nine minutes later Celtic managed to pull a goal back when substitute Kabelo Mahlasela, broke through the Sundowns defence and beat the keeper in a one-on-one, but his effort came off the post. Ronald Pfumbidzai, though, was there to tap home the rebound, 2-1.

Sundowns restored their two goal lead in the 75th minute, when Tau latched onto a through ball from Themba Zwane and make no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 3-1.

The icing on the cake for the Brazilians was their fourth goal two minutes from time, when Zwane turned home a low right-wing pass from Krahire Zakri, to hand them a 4-1 win on a warm afternoon in Pretoria.

@PHAZAMISA AKA NGOZI THE RETURN... Chiefs fans like u will keep on dreaming, hallucinate, day dream and in the end they have BP. Don’t wish for the impossible. Sundowns will hurt that little brain of yours.
