Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane was pleased to see his side score four goals, while he also showered praise on Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane.
Percy Tau netted a brace, while Motjeka Madisha and Themba Zwane also scored to lead the Brazilians to a 4-0 win on Tuesday.
As a result, Sundowns have moved to the summit of the Absa Premiership table.
"Two teams playing football," Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
"You could see the coach of Baroka, Kgoloko Thobejane, is doing a very good job. Sometimes we undermine him, he's playing good football.
"The last 15 minutes, they were a little bit dangerous with their combination play. This how they played against Platinum Stars and Cape Town City. They are dangerous, we couldn't even contain them.
"When you score goals, the confidence comes back. Sundowns play football.
"We got the rhythm and we got the triangles proper. I'm happy for Percy [Tau] to score two goals, because he does everything right but score goals, I think he should have scored a hat-trick. It will encourage him to score more goals.
"Overall, we played well. We started well. I think it's our third game where scored in the first three minutes, which is good and it helps us with confidence."
