Welcome to Orlando Stadium for our live coverage of this Nedbank Cup semi-final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits.
1'
Kick-Off! We are underway here in Soweto!
5'
It has been a slow start to the game. This was expected after such a long pause during the lockdown.
8'
CHANCE! Sundowns have the first real opportunity, but Mkhwanzi is there to avert the potential danger with a perfect challenge!
11'
Wits secure a free-kick in a promising position and the well worked set-piece allows Domingo to run into space and he fires a shot at goal that is BLOCKED by Kekana.
14'
CHANCE! Hotto tries a long-range shot and Onyango cannot secure it cleanly. Alexander also cannot get to the rebound to make him pay for it.
18'
We are still goalless as we aproach the 20 minute mark.
23'
DRINKS! It is now time for a drinks break on what is a very cold Highveld evening.
26'
Wits secure a corner after the restart and it is successfully cleared by the Sundowns defence.
30'
Wits have certainly enjoyed more of the ball since the break.
35'
PENALTY, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS! Mkhwanazi is penalised for shirt-pulling inside the Wits area. The replays shows that it was the correct and huge call by the referee.
37'
GOAL, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS, NASCIMENTO! (1-0) Nascimento makes no mistake and executes the penalty perfectly!
40'
Wits continue to enjoy more possession, but the statistic that really counts says Sundowns are going into the final at this stage.
43'
YELLOW! Gordinho of Wits is the first in the book for a clumsy challenge on Vilakazi.
45'
HALF-TIME: MAMELODI SUNDOWNS 1-0 BIDVEST WITS. Sundowns head into the break with a lead much against the run of play following a penalty. It has been a rather quiet first half.
45'
YELLOW! A second booking for Wits. Zwane is down after a foul by Hlatshwayo and the Wits captain is booked as a result.
45'
We will have three minutes of time added on for stoppages.
46'
Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half. What do Wits have in store for the next 45 minutes.
47'
It has been a brisk start from Wits here in the second half.
50'
SUB: We have some changes for Wits at the break. Sekgota and Gordinho is off and they have been replaced by Human and Macheke.
53'
Hotto sets off on a great run down the left and gets behind some Sundowns defenders, but Onyango does well to clear the danger.
55'
NO PENALTY! Zwane is down in the Wits box, but the referee is in a great spot. That looked like a dive rather than a foul.
57'
The onus is now on Wits to make the running in order to get back into the game.
60'
SUB: Sundowns now make a change and Makgalwa is on to replace Vilakazi.
62'
SUB: Gavin Hunt now makes another change. Eva Nga is on for Domingo.
64'
Wits have certainly been the better team thus far, but the score-line shows a different story.
66'
Wits secure a corner after a patient build-up down the right.
69'
It nearly dips into the back of the net after a flick-on from Dzvukamanja, following a good drift into the box.
70'
DRINKS BREAK! It is now time for the second water break.
73'
SUB: Jali and Lakay is on for Sundowns and they are replacing Zwane and Mkhulise.
75'
CLOSE! Sundowns have a free-kick and the ball skids off the top of Tyson's head for a Sundowns corner.
78'
GOAL, BIDVEST WITS, DZVUKAMANJA! (1-1) Dzvukamanja dispossesses Madisha near halfway who was very casual and he keeps his cool while running and slots it past the keeper.
80'
GOAL, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS, MAKGALWA! (2-1) What a howler by the keeper, who came out of his box and miss-kicks it completely. Why did he come out - His defender had it covered! An easy goal for Makgalwa!
83'
GOAL, BIDVEST WITS, DZVUKAMANJA! (2-2) Dzvukamanja scores his second goal and again it's thanks to a defensive error from Madisha.
87'
The Sundowns defence went to sleep there and Madisha in particular is struggling.
90'
YELLOW! Hlanti has been booked for a cynical foul.
90'
We will have five minutes of time added on for stoppages. Are we going to see some last minute fireworks?
93'
Some players are starting to cramp up - We will have fun in extra-time if this continues.
95'
GOAL, MAMELODI SUNDOWNS. LAKAY! (3-2) WOW! Sundowns secure a set-piece just outside the Wits penalty area. Lakay curls it in past the wall and Mhlongo is beaten all ends up.
96'
FULL-TIME: MAMELODI SUNDOWNS 3-2 BIDVEST WITS. Sundows are in the final and will meet Bloemfontein Celtic.What a game we witnessed here and the lead changed a few times before Lakay settled the tie in the final minute. Thank you for joining us.
