Here are four Sundowns players who, according to the statistics, were instrumental in ensuring that the Brazilians continue to comfortably lead the pack in the Absa Premiership.

Percy Tau:

Tau scored the winning goal on Sunday after Wayne Arendse was able to pull a goal back for the Brazilians who were initially trailing 1-0. Tau had two of his four shots on target, while also assisting three other shots taken by his teammates. The 23-year-old also made 50 touches and had a passing accuracy of 88%.

Tiyani Mabunda:

Mabunda touched the ball 91 times and made 73 successful passes with an accuracy of 88%. 

Ricardo Nascimento:

Nascimento made 42 successful passes, with a passing accuracy of 98%. The Brazilian won 19 balls and made 13 clearances while also being involved in 3 aerial duels. 

Wayne Arendse:

Arendse scored the first goal for Sundowns that saw Masandawana draw level. The centre-back also made 43 out of 43 successful passes, a passing accuracy of 100%

Sundowns will lock horns with Bidvest Wits this Saturday, April 14, in another must-win league encounter for the Brazilians.

It's the first I see these statistics. But what makes me happy is seeing Arendse there after I begged pitso to drop Madisha who was always losing position every time. And most of the goal we conceded were his failure to stick on his position. If you notice on what Arendse is doing. Arendse don't leave the defense area. It's he goes left or right. Than Madisha moving forward and even go pass manyisa or mabunda
