80' Al Ahly nearly punish Sundowns with a dangerous counter-attack but Lebusa does well to put in a last-ditch sliding tackle as the last line of defence.

15 May 22:40

78' Mkhulise is shown a yellow card for a late challenge.

15 May 22:33

70' SUNDOWNS DENIED! Ah Ahly goalkeeper El Shenawy is really proving his worth between the sticks as he palms a scorching drive by Motupa over the crossbar behind for a corner.

The goalkeeper then safely collects the resultant corner-kick.

15 May 22:31

69' Sundowns win a free-kick in a dangerous area just outside the area but Aubrey Modiba's effort goes high over the goal.

15 May 22:29

Sundowns seem to be getting closer to finding an important away goal.

15 May 22:21

59' Ashraf becomes the second player to be booked for a high challenge on Shalulile.

15 May 22:20

CHANCE! Sundowns go desperately close to an equaliser as Mosa Lebusa beats his defender at the near post but his glancing header is saved!

15 May 22:18

54' Gaston Sirino floats a free-kick towards the back post but his attempt just evades defender Ricardo Nascimento's reach.

15 May 22:14

51' Sundowns again are enjoying more of the ball as in the opening stages of the first-half but are struggling to pose the Al Ahly defence any real threat.

15 May 22:12

48' Sundowns starting the second-half with more urgency in search of an equaliser.

40' Al Ahly are hanging onto the ball and looking to take the game away from Sundowns as we move into the final 5 minutes of the first period.

15 May 21:38

35' A heavy collision between goalkeeper Denis Onyango and an Al-Ahly attacker contesting a long ball with the goalkeeper getting the free-kick.

Worryingly for Sundowns the home side seem to have recognised a weakness in their opponent's ability to handle balls over the top.

15 May 21:31

26' Their opener now has Al-Ahly with their tails firmly up as they look to have grown in confidence.

15 May 21:26

22' Al Ahly show their class with a clinical attack as Taher picks the ball up on the left flank before cutting onto his right foot and bending in an unstoppable drive into the top corner.

15 May 21:24

22' GOAL!! Al AHly take the lead!!!

15 May 21:23

20' CHANCE! Sundowns strike the woodwork as Gift Motupa got a glancing header on the resultant free-kick only to see his effort canon off the upright!

15 May 21:20

18' Al Ahly's Rami Rabia becomes the first player to go into the referee's book for a challenge from behind on Morena.

15 May 21:19

17' Striker Peter Shalulile wins a free-kick on the half-way line as Sundowns look to build a fast attack.

15 May 21:15

12' Sundowns are definitely enjoying more of the ball in the opening stages and look to be playing out from defence, with Rivaldo Coetzee playing an instrumental role.

15 May 21:08

6' Sundowns are growing in confidence in the early stages and appear to be gaining more of the ball.

15 May 21:06
