No Team Wants to Face Sundowns After Humiliating and Thrashing Pirates 4-1

Mamelodi Sundowns has turned Premier Soccer League monopoly, and the defending champions continue to punish every team they come across. After breaking a record of 23 unbeaten games in the league, Orlando Pirates where next on the list of Brazilians in a Nedbank Cup encounter. Now it's clear how Tshakhuma feels before the Sunday clash.

This time the Sundowns trio coaches Mancoba Mngqithi, Rulani Mokoena and Steve Kompela gave youngsters a chance in the starting lineup, and they didn't disappoint. Sundowns dominated the first half and it didn't take long for the striker Peter Shalulile, to put Brazilians in the lead. The Brazilians dominated possession in the first half, but that did not stop Amabakabaka to equalize through Tshegofatso Mabasa.

The second half was more of Sundowns, as Pirates players where shown dust by mighty Brazilians. Dribbling wizard Zwane fired Sundowns ahead on the 49th minute from a difficult angle, after Pirates where caught off guard. The Pirates players where running all over the field.

In a game that was televised on Dstv SuperSport channel, Sundowns where allover Pirates. Two more goals where scored when substitute Kapinga finished a smart move to score his second goal for the club in the 77th minute, and captain Hlompho Kekana put the final nail in the 85th minute to take Sundowns into the Semifinals.
