Chiefs get revenge on Sundowns

Kaizer Chiefs beat Mamelodi Sundowns at Soccer City

Posted: 22 August 2012 Time: 09:20 pm

Two goals in six minutes were enough to hand Kaizer Chiefs a 2-1 win against Mamelodi Sundowns at Soccer City on Wednesday night.

The Brazilians had thumped Chiefs 4-1 in the MTN8 earlier in the month, but Amakhosi bounced back in style for their second successive win in the League.

Chiefs were missing Morgan Gould, who ruptured his Achilles tendon a day before the game.

But his replacement, Tefu Mashamaite, came close to an early goal with a long-range shot that Wayne Sandilands saved.

In the ninth minute, Teko Modise played a one-two on the edge of the area and got in a decent shot, but Itumeleng Khune saved well.

And two minutes later Siyabonga Nkosi pulled the ball back to Kingston Nkhatha, who was in a very good position to shoot with Sandilands out of position, but the Sundowns defence just got back in time to get a block in.

Sundowns' best chance of the half came in the 16th minute when Modise let rip with a long-range effort, but Khune did really well to save it.

Elias Pelembe came very close in the 50th minute when he hit the upright with an attempt at the near post but, just two minutes later, Nkosi opened the scoring with a superb effort. He charged into the area and struck a low shot across goal and into the bottom corner.

Six minutes later Nkosi headed Siphiwe Tshabalala's deep corner back across goal for Nkhatha to nod home from close range.

Sundowns pulled one back in the 61st minute; Clayton Daniels' powerful drive rebounding off Khune and into the back of the net.

There were a few opportunities for either side to score more goals inside the final 15 minutes, but some excellent defending kept the scoreline at 2-1 to Chiefs.

Congratulations Amakhosi. We played well in the 2nd half. But our coach is tactically bankrupt. We are starting well and hoping the momentum will be kept through out.

Khosi going for the TOP

Tiyani wa ka Mabasa you high?...! Your analysis is poor for someone who has been in the bznz for a long time. Thieves haven't played any game since the 6-0 win over a poor team so, in a way they haven't tested their defense, midfield and strike force against a stronger opposition. They THINK they have turned the tables by that win yet not...Sundowns on the other hand had a chance of getting things right against a stronger opponents in Swallows ergo they know exactly where to tighten up and improve going forward. Obviously Zebras will want revenge, but they will do that with caution of not wanting to suffer another humiliation against the same team hence the careful approach...I expect a draw!!! With Sundowns domination position as they always do...WENA MABASA DON'T BRING YOUR POINT BASED ON YOUR LOVE FOR THUGS FC...ILLUMINATI CONTROLLED MEDIA!!!
