Mamelodi Sundowns Climb on Top of PSL Log Table

Premier Soccer League (PSL) leaders Mamelodi Sundowns won their first game of the season to take the top spot.

The club made sure the Brazilians collected all of the available points for the night, and they got their 2022/23 season off to a blazing start.

At DHL Stadium in Cape Town on Friday night, the Brazilians came away with three points after losing to Cape Town City.

Both teams appeared to be in good spirits in the first few minutes of the match.

Sundowns, the visitors from Tshwane, dominated possession in the first half and took a 1-0 lead.

It was a mistake for the hosts to put too much faith in Sundowns' counterattacks.

Sundowns' first-half domination was not enough to break down a well-organised City defence, despite their best efforts.

In the first half, City had chances of their own but were unable to take advantage of them.

A goalless deadlock prevailed as the game neared the halfway break.

Sundowns' desperation for an early goal showed in the second half as they continued to dominate.

In the second half, City didn't hold back much either, as the team pressed forward in search of goals.

Sundowns took the lead in the 60th minute through Aubrey Modiba's sensational free kick from outside the area, 15 minutes into the second half.

Themba Zwane made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute after beating the goalie to the far post and putting his team in a stronger position to grab three points while City were still attempting to recover from losing.

In the end, Sundowns won the game 2-0 and took home all three points.
