Premier League

Another man of the match performance from Rivaldo Coetzee against Kaizer Chiefs.

Rivaldo Coetzee must be loving the prospect of playing against Kaizer Chiefs every now and then. Rivaldo Coetzee has managed to collect yet again another Man of the match award against Kaizer Chiefs. In last season's first opening DSTV Premier Soccer League encounter between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns Rivaldo Coetzee walked away with the man of the match award. Rivaldo walked away with the Man of the match award after Mamelodi Sundowns were able to ease past Kaizer Chiefs, as they defeated Amakhosi by three goals to nil.

In a similar fate, Kaizer Chiefs lost to Mamelodi Sundowns and Rivaldo Coetzee walked away with the Man of the match award but this time around the score was down by a goal with Mamelodi Sundowns winning by two goals to nil. Mamelodi Sundowns hosted Kaizer Chiefs at the Loftus Versfielpark Stadium on Sunday evening, in a DSTV Premier Soccer League match. The Brazilians were victories by two goals to nil and Rivaldo Coetzee walked away with the Man of the match accolade.

Mamelodi Sundowns fielded a more experienced side today, in the form of an attack. Mamelodi Sundowns gave Kermit Erasmus his first start of the season, Erasmus was playing alongside the likes of Peter Shalulile, Themba Zwane, and Gaston Sirino. Andile Jali was called on to partner Rivaldo Coetzee in midfield. Thapelo Morena, Rushine De Reuck, Grant Kekana and Lyle Lakay complete the back four for Mamelodi Sundowns. The experience of Andile Jali in midfield helped Rivaldo Coetzee dominate the Kaizer Chiefs midfield as he was able to pick passes from his own half and break Kaizer Chiefs' attack.

Kaizer Chiefs did not have that much control over the game but they showed signs of improvement in the second half but they were dealt a heavy blow when Peter Shalulile scored his first goal of the game and his team's second goal. Even though Kaizer Chiefs asked the questions and created most of the chances, Mamelodi Sundowns walk away with the three points in the back.
