Erasmus and Roberts continued to make a nuisance of themselves and the previous was ultimately rewarded when he deftly chipped the ball into the again of the online within the 43rd minute, with Onyango as soon as once more stranded.

Sundowns dug deep and pulled one again when Wayne Arendse pressured Dove into scoring an personal aim after a nook from Gaston Sirino simply earlier than the break.   

Sundowns made a vibrant begin after play resumed within the second half, however they all the time ran the chance of exposing themselves within the again as they desperately went seeking a aim.
