Hello and welcome to live coverage of TS Galaxy to Mamelodi Sundowns in the DSTV Premiership. Kickoff is at 3pm from Mbombela Stadium.
1'
We are underway!
4'
Sundowns have started out with lots of possession so far but it's mostly been in deep areas and at a low tempo.
7'
Shalulile wins a first corner for Sundowns. Mkhuma delivers an inswinger with his left foot from the right but it's headed clear.
9'
A reminder that Sundowns are without several players today including Denis Onyango, Mkhulise, Zwane and Erasmus.
11'
Sundowns are facing a very organised 5-3-2 formation for TS Galaxy. Jali plays a ball over the top for Mkhuma's run in off the left but the offside flag is raised.
14'
We've had a very slow start to this match with little action in the final third.
16'
Sundowns have made 118 passes to just 52 for TS Galaxy thus far. 65% possession to 35% for the away side.
17'
GOAL! SHALULILE! Mkhuma delivers a corner into the box, Mahlangu and Bodibe fail to clear and Shalulile reacts fastest to head the bouncing ball past Van der Linde. TS Galaxy 0-1 Mamelodi Sundowns.
19'
Modiba does good work to win a corner for Sundowns. He delivers the ball himself from the left and Lebusa flicks his near post header just wide of goal. Good effort that.
22'
Owen Da Gama's team are trying to get back into this match using Luckyboy Mokoena on the right but Sundowns look in complete control.
27'
Wide! Mudua makes a driving run forward from right back for Sundowns and wins a corner. Mkhuma delivers once again and Maboe heads wide from a good position. That's a decent opening.
29'
Galaxy win their first corner as Seedat's cross is headed behind by Nascimento. Mbatha delivers from the left but they commit a foul in the box and the move breaks down.
30'
Sundowns now have a good attack as Motupa runs into the right channel and crosses low into the box. Shalulile got in-front of his marker but he couldn't get any contact on the cross with a flick.
31'
PENALTY! TS Galaxy have a spot-kick. Aubaas strikes a powerful shot and Lebusa handballs. No complaints over that decision.
32'
PENALTY SAVED! Mbatha steps up for TS Galaxy with a slow run-up. He goes to Mweene's right and the goalkeeper does well to push the shot past the post. Excellent goalkeeping and a huge opportunity wasted by the hosts.
35'
Sundowns have been warned by that missed penalty and are playing a bit more cautiously now, keeping the ball at the back betwen their defenders and their goalkeeper.
41'
CHANCE! Sundowns switch play out to Mudau on the right and he delivers a perfect cross towards Shalulile who heads wide of the post. That's a very good opportunity for a striker of his quality. That should have been 2-0 to Sundowns.
42'
61% of this match has been played in the middle third. There hasn't been a lot of action near the two boxes thus far.
45'
HALF TIME. It's been quite a slow match. Sundowns lead 1-0 through Shalulile's 17th minute goal. TS Galaxy had a chance to level but Mbatha had a 32nd minute penalty saved by Mweene. Join us in 15 minutes for the second half.
45'
The fourth official indicates one minute of additional time to be played.
45'
Mkhuma is chopped down by Mahlangu. The defender is fortunate not to be yellow carded for that challenge.
46'
We are underway in the second half with two changes for TS Galaxy. Phohlongo replaces Seedat at left wingback and Lekay is on for Mbatha.
48'
Sundowns have started this half in control with good pressing to close TS Galaxy down.
51'
This has been a very stop-start second half so far with the ball barely in play and lots of throw-ins.
54'
Mokoena delivers two crosses from the right for TS Galaxy but both are well defended by Sundowns.
55'
Sundowns break down the right through speed merchant Mkhuma. He plays a perfect cross to Motupa but Msimango comes over to make an excellent tackle inside he box.
56'
Wide! Mudau gets forward on the overlap again for Sundowns and delivers a perfect cross which Motupa heads wide of goal under pressure.
57'
Sundowns have had five shots in this match thus far to just one for TS Galaxy.
60'
The changes at half time really haven't seen much improvement from the hosts.
63'
Lekay is booked for TS Galaxy for catching Maboe with a late challenge.
65'
Mbunjana wins the ball off Jali with a strong tackle and tries a shot from 65 yards for TS Galaxy but his effort is comfortably claiming by retreating goalkeeper Mweene.
70'
TS Galaxy make a change as Munyai comes on for Mokoena at right wingback.
72'
Bodibe is down receiving treatment for the home team after a very poor tackle by Mudau. He is surely not going to be able to continue.
74'
Sundowns make their first changes as Sirino enters the action in place of Motupa and Lakay replaces Modiba.
77'
TS Galaxy make a change now as Bodiba is not able to play on and Modisane comes on in the back three.
79'
Close! Maboe strikes a snapshot towards goal for Sundowns but it sails high over the crossbar.
80'
Lebusa and Lekay are down after a sickening clash of heads. Both players are receiving treatment. They are both okay to continue.
84'
TS Galaxy make their final substitution as Shozi replaces Macuphu in attack.
87'
Sirino makes an excellent dribble down the left and plays a one-two. He delivers a cross which makes it's way to Mudau at the back post but the latter strikes high and wide of goal.
88'
Wide! The hosts have a very rare glimmer of a chance as Aubaas delivers a diagonal into the area and Lekay gets up highest to head wide from the penalty spot. That was no more than a half- chance at best for TS Galaxy.
88'
Sundowns make a double change now as Mvala replaces Mkhuma and Brian Onyango is introduced in place of Jali. That's a lot of extra height for the away side to defend this lead.
89'
Mvala is booked just seconds after coming on for Sundowns as he clips the heels of Mbunjana.
90'
FULL TIME. TS Galaxy 0-1 Mamelodi Sundowns. The visitors go seven points clear. Shalulile's 17th minute goal was the difference as TS Galaxy missed a first half penalty. Thanks for joining us.
90'
+5' Modisane is yellow carded for TS Galaxy for pulling back Shalulile.
90'
+4' CHANCE! Munyai's cross causes panic in the Sundowns box, Shozi finds Phohlongo to cut past Lebusa but he strikes his shot high over the bar from about seven yards. That was a huge opportunity to make it 1-1 for the hosts.
90'
The fourth official raises his board and indicates four minutes of additional time to be played.
