Result: Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 Sekhukhune United

Date: 27 November 2021

Venue: ABSA Tuks Stadium

Sundowns were unchanged from their thrilling draw with SuperSport United, with Peter Shalulile and Pavol Safranko leading the front line while Sekhukhune were boosted by the return of their top goalscorer Chibuike Ohizu.

The Brazilians were on top of the visitors in the opening exchanges and Neo Maema got the first real opening in the 16th minute with curling strike that dipped slightly over the bar.

Maema eventually broke the deadlock for the hosts five minutes later with a clinical half-volley inside the box into the top corner after a knockdown by Peter Shalulile.

Babina Noko started to spring forward after that but their attacking intensity quickly faded away without troubling Sundowns shot-stopper Denis Onyango for most of the opening 45 minutes.

Sekhukhune were fired after break but they conceded a penalty on the hour-mark after Shalulile's shot appeared tohit the arm of Nyiko Mobbie, although replays suggest the ball hit his chest, but Themba Zwane doubled Sundowns' lead with a composed spot-kick.

Shalulile should have made it 3-0 for the Brazilians four minutes later after exchanging passes with Mudau to have a clear sight of goal inside the box but his shot across goal missed just wide.

Cheslyn Jampies had Sekhukhune's first shot on target 15 minutes before time with a rocket from range that was bravely parried away by Onyango.

However, Sundowns were reduced to ten men five minutes before time after Onyango was sent off for bringing down Tshidiso Patjie, who was through on goal.

The hosts' reserve goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene replaced Haashim Domingo and his first task was to face a free-kick from Jampies on the edge of the box and he was forced into a save, as Sundowns kept a cleansheet to move nine points clear at the top of the log.

Here's how they started:

Sundowns: 14. D.Onyango, 5. Lebusa, 25. Mudau, 4. Kekana, 7. Lakay, 15. Jali, 23. Domingo, 35. Maema, 18. Zwane, 9. Safranko, 38. Shalulile.
