Ratings:

Lebohang Maboe: 7/10
 
Maboe impressed on his full debut for Sundowns, linking up with Morena and Brockie, while also managing to get on the score-sheet.
 
Thapelo Morena: 7/10
 
Morena was a real threat down the right flank and had the beating of his man on numerous ocassions. He also carved out a couple chances.
 
Ricardo Nascimento: 7.5/10
 
The Brazilian defender managed to find the back of the net for the second game running with a fine header, while he was solid defensively throughout.
 
Lyle Lakay: 7/10
 
Started at left-back for the second straight game and put in an impressive display on both ends. He also grabbed the assist for Maboe's goal.
 
Tiyani Mabunda: 7/10
 
Mabunda kept things simple in the middle of the mark and did well to silence the influential Maluleke for the home side.
 
Themba Zwane: 7.5/10
 
Zwane was vital to Sundowns' dominance in the middle of the park. He kept possession ticking and was a constant threat in the final third.
 
Worst:
 
Ndivhuwo Ravhuhali: 4/10
 
Was easily beaten by Morena on a few occasions, and was out-jumped by Maboe for Sundowns' second goal.
 
Vusimuzi Mngomezulu: 5/10
 
Managed to get in a couple good positions in the final third, but he was let down by his final ball.
 
Mbulelo Wagaba: 4/10
 
Squandered Polokwane's biggest chance in the first half when they were down, while he didn't offer enough to trouble the Sundowns defenders.
 
Tebogo Kalake: 4/10
 
Similarly to Ravhuhali, Kalake endured a tough night down the flank and was often caught out of position.
