Mamelodi Sundowns have secured the top position in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) log table after winning their first game of the new season.
The Brazilians started their 2022/23 season like a house on fire after the club made sure that they collect all the points on offer for the night.
The Brazilians collected three points away from Cape Town City on Friday evening at DHL Stadium in Cape Town.
The game started very slow as both teams looked relaxed in the early opening minutes of the game.
The visitors, Sundowns were in control of the game most of the first half as the ball possession favoured the Tshwane based side.
The hosts were relying too much on counter attacks to come at Sundowns.
Despite their first half dominance, Sundowns could not penetrate the defence of the home side as City were well organised at the back.
City also had chances of their own in the first half of the game without getting anything out of the chances created.
The game entered the halftime break on a goalless stalemate.
In the second half, Sundowns continued with their dominance as the club was now desperate for the opener.
City also did not sit back much in the second half as the club also pushed forward for goals.
15 minutes into the second half, Sundowns found their opener in the 60th minutes through Aubrey Modiba who scored a stunner free kick outside of the box and gave his side a lead.
Few minutes while City were still trying to recover from conceding, Themba Zwane extended the lead of the visitors to 2-0 in the 63rd minutes after beating the goalkeeper to the far post and put his side in a better position to claim three points.
The game ended with 2-0 in favour of Sundowns and the Tshwane based side claimed all three points.
