Pretoria - Surprise Moriri has scored either side of half-time to guide Mamelodi Sundowns to a comfortable 3-0 win over St Michel in their CAF Champions League preliminary round clash in Atteridgeville on Saturday night.
Sundowns won 4-1 on aggregate after their first leg meeting ended 1-1 in the Seychelles a fortnight ago.
Moriri scored early in the first half from a penalty kick awarded for a foul on Mzikayise Mashaba, before scoring again after half-time as the South Africans booked their spot in the next round.
Katlego Mashego added the third just before full-time to see out a much improved performance from Sundowns, who picked themselves up from their disappointing draw two weeks ago.
Moriri got Sundowns off to the perfect start when he converted the penalty which sent the Brazilians on their way.
The goal allowed Sundowns to dominate the midfield and settled the hosts into a rhythm which St Michel struggled to combat.
Sundowns carried their lead into the break and were in control. Not long after the half-time interval the Brazilians doubled their advantage as Moriri chipped in for his second of the night.
Pitso Mosimane's men were cruising and looked untroubled by their counterparts from Seychelles, who looked a far cry from the first leg, where they had Sundowns on the back foot for most of the game.
A third goal was there for the taking and Sundowns duly obliged as second half replacement Mashego scored two minutes from the end to wrap up a comfortable result for Sundowns.
