Mamelodi Sundowns vs Golden Arrows Nedbank Cup

Posted: 22 March 2014 Time: 22:20

Mamelodi Sundowns came from a goal down to beat Golden Arrows 4-1 in a last 16 round Nedbank Cup tie at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday evening.

Philani Shange opened the scoring for the hosts, but goals from Dove Wome, Lebohang Mokoena, Anthony Laffor and Percy Tau booked Sundowns’ place in the final eight.

Sundowns looked to dominate from the onset, but it was the home side who took the lead through Shange in the 13th minute.

Siyanda Zwane made a driving run down the right flank before playing the ball into the area; his cut-back evaded a couple of Downs players but not Shange, who produced a powerful shot to send the home fans into delirium.

Sundowns continued to press forward and finally found their reward six minutes before the break. Laffor played in Wome, whose low drive from an acute angle got the better of Nkosingiphile Gumede.

The old-guard of Teko Modise, Alje Schut and Surprise Moriri combined well 10 minutes into the second stanza with the latter’s effort smashing off the post, before Mokoena grabbed the lead for the Brazilians in the 58th minute.

‘Cheeseboy’ found himself in a pocket of space just outside the area before smashing the ball past Gumede.

Four minutes later and it was 3-1. Laffor left two defenders in his wake before finishing off superbly with the outside of his boot.

Tau capped off a superb comeback in the 90th minute. Teko Modise hit the inside of the post before recovering the rebound and setting up Tau, who produced an exquisite first time finish to net his first goal of his Sundowns career. 

Golden Arrows: Gumede; Ntombayithethi, Zwane, Nene, Tom, Mngwengwe, Khuboni (Musonda 68’), Katongo, Moholo (Mbewe 61’), Shange (Thwala 74’), Hotto

Mamelodi Sundowns: Sandilands; Mphahlele, Schut, Nthethe, Mashaba, Laffor, Kekana, Modise, Moriri (Masenamela 79’), Wome (Nyandoro 65’), Mokoena (Tau 74’)

@mag6

I agree with you, its gonna be a great game. I think the worst results Sundowns can get is a draw as I don't see pitso losing twice to baxter. And baxter won't risk losing 3 by going forward too much, I think he will keep it tight at the back & let Sundowns come at him & try to catch them on a counter, javelin style.

The score is flattering I think, yes sundowners dominated position. The first half arrrows were in control n looked dangerous on counter. If Katongo buried that chance who knws wat wud have happened. Downs must thank butlet n co for fielding gumede in such a crucial game. Why did u bring in bartman?

@Buc-champ

It's good to know that even Pirates fans enjoy Pitso's interviews. The guy always speaks his mind & his funny too.

Definatley sir. A point will be all that Baxter needs and deserves.However, Kaizer Chiefs has has shown signs of being ruthless lately. They want to win everything on their way because they have seen....putting your faith on other teams to do one a favour won't help them. However,the very crucial game for that game is the one they will both play before they meet each other. Both teams will be streching their points because when they meet...expect the un expected.

I have already started writing Arrows obituary in the PSL. With the goalkeeping crisis they have they will not survive the chop.

Exactly....as a sandawana i'm hoping we don't drop points against plat stars on tuesday so that the chiefs game can be a six pointer. With so much travelling I think chiefs will drop points at some stage but I have to say against ajax they had a never say die attitude, they played their hearts out.

The very same team helped your team to win by scoring an own goal. Your Zim connection had failed to score. You think you are invincible huh? Just wait and see, Offside Chiefs FC is going to be brought down to earth by a team you all least expected to do that.

That's so crucial.I pray that we also beat Wits. Your team is good.All the players are good, especially Teko, he is still the general. Him and Yeye are best readers of the game in SA.

Counter attacking and transition football aka javelin by haters. I don't see sundowns winning this game. Pitso is not a brave coach. The way I see it he will be eager 2 protect his no2 position. For this game he sure will play an unfamiliar style, more defensive and hoping to catch Chiefs on counter forgetting that his players are aging and lack the killer pase needed.

The way Chiefs are playing now I see a score line of 2-0 to Chiefs.

Kaizer Chiefs continue their quest to conquer Africa in the Champions League as they take on AS Vita in the DRC in the first leg of the second round of the Champions League on Sunday. 

Midfielder Reneilwe "Yeye" Letsholonyane tells the Siya crew that they are well prepared for the difficult task ahead of them. 

He said that they know it's going to be tough, but they are ready both mentally and physically.

Letsholonyane said, “We know there is nothing that is going to be easy playing in this tournament. But as a team we are well prepared for this game. 

“We want to get a good result playing away so that at home we could just wrap it up. It won't be easy at all but we are prepared for the fight," the Bafana Bafana midfielder concluded.

We are getting there. Others call themselves Bucslona while it is us who play without our right strikers and managed to punish determined Pirates B.

Well done Downs
