G'Day and welcome to the Orlando Stadium for our live coverage of this DSTV Premiership clash between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.
Kick-Off! We are underway here in Soweto.
It's very hot here and the players may have to take in some liquids throughout.
It's a great bright and breazy start from Sundowns and the Pirates keeper is called into action early after a shot at goal following a patient build-up. Mpontshane does well to gather the ball clearly.
Sundowns continue to push the ball around the park while holding onto possession.
OVER! Zwane is into space for Sundowns and sends Kutumela away towards goal but the effort flies OVER!
Sundowns come again and this time courtesy of Kermit Erasmus. Great work by Mako to dispossess the Sundowns man.
YELLOW! De Reuck is booked after a cynical foul on Dzvukamanja.
Dzvukamanja stayed down for a while before continuing. Is he ok?
Pule and Pirates launch another attack, as he tries a long-range curler but it flies over Onyango's goal.
Kutumela makes his way into the Pirates half before firing a long-range curling effort to the right of the keeper.
Mako is guilty of a foul on Sundowns' Kekana and the visitors have a free-kick.
Kutumela is at it again with another long-range effort. This time it's path is interfered by a defender. It would not have counted as the flag is up for OFFSIDE.
Pirates have a rare corner thanks to Onyango after a shot from Shandu. That was a decent SAVE by the keeper.
CLOSE! The corner is floated in and Jele's header is just narrowly WIDE!
SUBSTITUTION: Unfortunately after trying to play on after that knock Dzvukamanja has now succumb and will be replaced by Makhubela.
YELLOW! Sundowns' Jali is booked for a bad foul on Mabaso.
Shandu is fed by a superb Hotto cross but Kutumela saves the day for Sundowns.
These teams are still locked at 0-0. Will one of them break the deadlock before we head to the sheds?
Hlatshwayo sends a good pass for Mabasa near the edge of the box but the latter is OFFSIDE!
HALF-TIME: ORLANDO PIRATES 0-0 MAMELODI SUNDOWNS. We are all square at the break but Sundowns have had the better chances and if they continue this way they may well maintain that good record against Pirates.
Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half.
Hlatshwayo is guilty of a foul on De Reuck and Sundowns have a free-kick in their half of the field.
YELLOW! No surprises there and Hlatshwayo has now been cautioned for that foul.
Erasmus Kermits himself into a non-existent gap and fires home a shot which clears the bar far too easily. After all that work he should have done better.
GOAL, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS, SHALULILE! 0-1: There is is!
A great assist by Kutumela but the finishing from Shalulile is superb as he puts the visitors in front. This one will count unlike the one that found the back of the net just before the break where the flag was raised.
It's almost two for Sundowns but the Lakay strike after an assist from Zwane flies WIDE and to the left.
YELLOW! Goodman Mosele is in the book after a dangerous foul on Sundowns' Kutumela.
SUBSTITUTION: A change for Sundowns and Domingo is on for Zwane.
A rare corner for Pirates after Rivaldo Coetzee blocks it under pressure.
Coetzee is now fouled by Mosele for a set-piece in his own half.
Great work by Domingo after the hard work was done by Lakay in the build-up and Sundowns have a corner.
GOAL, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS, SHALULILE! 0-2: There is is! NUMBER TWO!
Great work by Lyle Lakay, who sends in a perfectly floated cross for Peter Shalulile to tuck it away into the back of the net.
SUBSTITUTION: A change for Pirates and Monare is on to replace Mabaso.
SUBSTITUTION: Another change for Sundowns now and Mvala is on for Jali.
It's getting a bit feisty out there now but Sundowns are now the team giving the free-kicks away.
The late charge from Pirates continue and they secure a corner but Sundowns clear.
An over eager Hlatshwayo slides into Safranko for a Sundowns free-kick. Let us not forget that Hlatshwayo is already on a booking.
We are now into the three minutes of time added on for stoppages.
Sundowns now trying to make it three with a Maema shot that is well SAVED!
FULL-TIME: ORLANDO PIRATES 0-2 MAMELODI SUNDOWNS. It's now five games without defeat in a row for Sundowns against Pirates and they are the deserved winners here this afternoon. Thank you for joining us.
