*9 Denis Onyango – Two penalty saves to deny Tshabalala and Abraw. He also stopped Parker in a one-on-one situation in the 70th minute. Tshabalala on Onyango: “I think he was the best player of the day.”

6 Asavela Mbekile – Caught out of position at times at right-back, but didn’t do so badly considering he had big shoes to fill with Ramahlwe Mphahlele out injured.

7 Tebogo Langerman – Defended well and was a threat in attack too, including playing a part in Sundowns’ first goal. He played the ball through to Billiat, who passed it on to goalscorer Castro.

6 Wayne Arendse – Looked solid alongside Nthethe, but Chiefs did find a way through at times.

7 Thabo Nthethe – Conceded two penalties (both debatable), but scored a cracking header at the other end.

8 Hlompho Kekana – Scored the third goal and put in a dominant display in midfield.

7 Khama Billiat – Great ball to find Castro for the opening goal and created a couple more chances, including one for Zwane in the 21st minute, but was a bit selfish at times.

7 Bongani Zungu – Another solid performance by Zungu, and once again showed just how much he will be missed once he heads to Europe.

7 Leonardo Castro – Scored in the fifth minute and helped out in defence, like he did in the 33rd minute when Chiefs had a corner and he headed the ball away. Came off at halftime, but apparently that had something to do with an injury.

7 Keagan Dolly – Considering he had just returned from Senegal where he played for South Africa’s U-23s, Dolly had a fairly good game and played almost the entire game.

7 Themba Zwane – Made some dangerous runs, plus provided a brilliant assist for Kekana’s goal.

6 Teko Modise – Came off the bench to put in assist for Nthethe’s goal.

Anthony Laffor – Didn’t play long enough for a rating after replacing Dolly with four minutes to go.

Mogakolodi Ngele – He also didn’t play long enough after replacing Zwane in injury time.
