The Buccaneers were humbled by Sundowns on Saturday afternoon in their own backyard Orlando Stadium.
Peter Shalulile's brace was enough to hand the visitors maximum points.
Sundowns went two points clear on top of the log table.
Speaking after the game Pirates coach Fadlu Davids believes his side had better chances despite having a poor start.
Davids admitted that Sundowns used their chances while his side did not.
Davids said after Sundowns scored their first goal his side got back to the game and forced Sundowns into areas they wanted them to play in.
"Think then we created the better chances, they had one across the edge of the box over, but we created good moments," he said.
Davids believes that Denis Onyango should have been awarded the man of the match award following a number of good saves he made.
He concluded that they will learn from today's loss after having so many chances which they did not use.
Pirates will be back in action next week when they play against Cape Town City.
