Entertaining Tshwane Derby Ends In Stalemate

Absa Premiership 

Result: Mamelodi Sundowns 1-1 SuperSport United

Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United played to an entertaining 1-1 draw in the Tshwane derby at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Thapelo Morena nearly grabbed the lead for Masandawana in the eighth minute with an out-stretched volley inside the box but Ronwen Williams was alert to make a save.

Two minutes later and the home crowd were left shocked as Thabo Mnyamane gave Matsatsantsa the lead with a brilliant low strike from just inside the box after latching onto a long ball.

The Brazilians should have equalised in the 21st minute after Gaston Sirino released Percy Tau in the box but instead of striking at goal with only the goalkeeper to beat, the forward tried to play the ball across to Themba Zwane, who failed to make contact.

Pitso Mosimane’s men took the game to United after half-an-hour while Matsatsantsa were content to just attack on the counter as the half continued.

Morgan Gould had a chance to extend SuperSport's lead just before the half-time break but he volleyed over the crossbar from six-yards out as they went into the break leading by one goal.

Sibusiso Vilakazi had a chance to bring Masandawana level five minutes into the second stanza, just moments after coming on for Khama Billiat, but he failed to hit the target from close range.

Sirino was unlucky five minutes later to find the upright with a free-kick from the edge of the box as the Brazilians threatened to find the equaliser.

On the hour mark, Evans Rusike was terribly unlucky not to have punished the Brazilians after going through one-on-one with goalkeeper as his strike hit the upright with Onyango well beaten.

United were hanging by a thread with 15 minutes left to play but were dangerous on the counter-attacks as Masandawana attacked in numbers desperate for a leveler.

It was only a matter of time before Matsatsantsa would break and they did just so 12 minutes before time when Tau equalised for the Brazilians with a fine finish into the bottom corner.

Both sides went in search of a winner in the closing stages, but 1-1 was how the score remained at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

some people are confusing me from what i saw Tau was not selfish in this game he firstly whipped in a cross from the right but it was wasted, secondly he gave Zwane a beautiful pass which we only see in European clubs instead of going for himself then he scored a beautiful goal to pull sundowns in the game People this is no way of growing a pkayer he needs guidance and support not negativity please let's embrace this rare tallent even Mo Salah started as a Chelsea flop look at him now 31 goals in 37 games every one deserves a chance and there's always a room for improvement.

Our defence always had a shield of Kekana/Mabunda in front of them, with confusion of Manyisa who is tried every game, that combination is broken which exposes Onyango, did u even think in that defensive position Mabunda could be sacrificed for Manyisa, I'm speechless
