Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns reached the Telkom Knockout final after beating SuperSport United 3-1 in their semi-final clash at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville on Saturday night.

Leonardo Castro gave ‘Downs the lead in the ninth minute, but his effort was soon erased when SuperSport’s David Mathebula levelled matters in the 12th minute.

Thabo Nthethe regained the lead for Sundowns in the 61st minute, before a thunderous strike from Bongani Zungu in the 80th minute sealed the defending champions’ fate.

Sundowns' Keagan Dolly was named man-of-the-match.

Sundowns will now face Kaizer Chiefs in the final (December 16) after Amakhosi earlier eliminated Orlando Pirates in a penalty shootout at FNB Stadium.
