05 Apr 21:31

96' FULL TIME

The referee brings this match to an end.
Sundowns had a lot of chances to win the match but praise has to be given to Tignyemb and Mweene for keeping the score sheet goalless.

This has been Sundowns FIFTH consecutive draw.

05 Apr 21:26
93' Foul by Nascimento on Moeketsi Mvula, free kick awarded and in all the mix of this Sibusiso Mxoyana is booked for time wasting.
05 Apr 21:21
91' Patrick Tignyemb gets a yellow card
05 Apr 21:20
90' Three minutes of additional time added on...
05 Apr 21:18
87' A great free kick from Teko but once again Tignyemb is present as he makes a brilliant save to deny the former Orlando Pirates player.
05 Apr 21:11
81' Sundowns are looking to book their 30th victory over Celtic in league history.
05 Apr 21:10
80' Sundowns 0-0 Celtic
05 Apr 21:07
77' Getting touchy-touchy now as Musa Nyatama is fouled by Soumahoro Bangaly.
05 Apr 21:04

74' Laffor gets a free kick after a challenge from Alfred Ndengane

05 Apr 20:59
72' Sundowns 0-0 Celtic
05 Apr 20:59

45' SECOND HALF START

05 Apr 20:32

The players are all back on the field as the second half is about to begin...

05 Apr 20:20

47' HALF TIME!

A decent run by both teams.
Celtic would need to affect the game more in attack because Sundowns can pull the trigger if only there chances hit the back of the net.

A lot can happen in the next 45 minutes

05 Apr 20:17
46' Meanwhile, Tiyani unable to continue and is replaced with Teko Modise.
05 Apr 20:15
45' Three minutes of additional time

42' Phalane is booked for a foul on Mabunda.
05 Apr 20:10
40' Sundowns 0-0 Celtic
05 Apr 20:08
Tignyemb whould really release the ball quick. Set the game up for a counter attack. Fullbacks will need to come to the party as well. Would balance out the attack. 
05 Apr 20:06

31' Lyle Lakay challenges Mweene to which the referee blows his whistle for a free kick.

Pretty much picking up tempo now as Sundowns and Celtic have built a rhythm in their attacks. 

05 Apr 20:03

28' Phalane takes a shot but Mweene is quick and parries the effort to safety.

05 Apr 19:58

05 Apr 19:57
21' Sundowns 0-0 Celtic
05 Apr 19:53
18' Castro gets a chance to put Sundowns ahead but his headed effort could only dip on the top of the nets

05 Apr 19:48

Fromer Celtic boss Joe Mafela recently passed away... 


05 Apr 19:45

9' Mabasa is flagged offside.

He has been really helpful this season so far for Celtic. 

05 Apr 19:37

Tignyemb has on several times this season come to Celtics rescue. 

A win tonight will lift Celtic further away from relegation danger as they sit 12th on the log.

05 Apr 19:33
3' Kekana with a lowly struck shot but Tignyemb gloves it easily. 
05 Apr 19:31
