Defending Premiership champions unleashed an avalanche of attacks on Moroka Swallows to cruise to a 4-1 win.

Sundowns came out guns blazing in the first half in search of a positive start to the New Year after a lukewarm first-half of the season.

The Brazilians had a blistering passage of play that yielded four goals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium yesterday evening.

They opened the scoring through a header in the box from captain Alje Schut in the 13th minute after an accurate free-kick delivered by Teko Modise.

A minute later it was striker Cuthbert Malajila’s turn to score after being the recipient of a cross from Anthony Laffor on the edge of the box.

Malajila completed his brace in the 21st minute with an easy tap-in after a square pass from Siyanda Zwane.

Having played a key role in many of the goals, Modise grabbed a goal of his own when Swallows goalkeeper Greg Etafia misjudged the midfield maestro’s free-kick that wobbled into the back of the net in the 24th minute.

With four goals to the good, Sundowns were in cruise-control.

The industrious Laffor nicked the ball from Swallows defender Luvhengo Mungomeni and drove a powerful shot over an unconvincing Etafia in the 40th minute.

With seconds to go before the end of the first-half Mzikayise Mashaba in attempting an acrobatic clearance in the box fouled Felix Obada.

Winger Luyolo Nomandela on-loan at Swallows, converted the penalty with aplomb against his parent club to make it 4-1.
