Khama Billiat: 8/10
Billiat was a super sub as he came on in the 57th minute and found both of his side’s goal with two clinical finishes.
Hlompho Kekana: 7/10
Kekana was his usual solid and creative self in the middle of the park. He controlled the midfield battle – he was solid defensively and created numerous scoring chances for his teammates with his through balls. Kekana did create his side’s second goal with a sublime pass for Billiat.
Sibusiso Vilakazi: 7/10
Vilakazi was a constant threat in attack for Sundowns. Not only did he create good scoring chances for his teammates with his pace and passing, but he also had some powerful shots on goal that were just off target or saved.
Percy Tau: 7/10
Tau was a constant threat in attack. His finishing was not at his best, but he did get into good areas which pulled Wits defenders out of position and created space for other Sundowns attackers. Tau also provided the pin-point cross from the left which led to the game’s opening goal.
Darren Keet: 7/10
Keet was spectacular between the sticks for Wits. He made numerous good saves to keep his side in the match. There was nothing he could do to prevent the opening goal or the second one as his defence let him down.
Daine Klate: 7/10
Klate was the creative spark in the Wits team. He drove forward with pace and venom from the middle of the park and gave the Sundowns defence numerous headaches. Klate’s passing created chances for his teammates as did his deliveries from set-pieces.
Thapelo Morena: 5/10
Morena was not very threatening in attack for Sundowns. He struggled to find space and get his foot on the ball. The one chance that Vilakazi did create for him, Moreno shot straight at the keeper under no pressure from the attack. He was substituted early in the second half.
Amr Gamal: 5/10
The Egyptian attacker was poor in the final third. He struggled to find space and get his foot on the ball. When he did get the ball his first touch was poor, as was his finishing.
Buhle Mkhwanazi: 5/10
It was a tough night in defence for Mkhwanazi. He struggled with the pace of the Sundowns attackers and got caught often with through balls in behind him. He was partly to blame for both his side’s goals.
Reeve Frosler: 5/10
Frosler did well in the first half – he defended well in his right back position and got forward in attack down the flank, but he had a terrible second half. He was constantly beaten by the likes of Tau and Vilakazi on the wings. He also did not get forward in the second half. Moreover, it was his mistake in defence which led to the game’s opening goal with a misplaced pass.
