89' - What a goal that is! Modise has scored from just inside the box with a curler into the top left corner. Laffor did all the hard yards down the right-hand touchline and cut the ball back to the Sundown's playmaker. Josephs had no chance in saving that.

The ball, however, was not cleared and Malajila managed to flick it into an open net after Josephs had chosen to join the fray! The Wits keeper tried to get back and make the save but the ball trickled over the line.

22 Aug 16:15
51' - What a save by JosephsNgele unleashes an incredible left-footed pile-driver, but Josephs dives full length to his right and manages to steer the ball over the bar. A goal kick is given and not a corner, a mistake by the officials.

HALF TIME AT THE LUCAS MORIPE STADIUM

Sundowns 1 Wits 0

22 Aug 15:51

45' +3' - Hlatshwayo is down for Wits. He was hurt earlier in a challenge with Malajila

22 Aug 15:50
45 +2' - Another free-kick to Wits after Klate is brought down. He swings it in and there are massive appeals for handball by the Wits players. Nothing given and Sundowns clear. 
22 Aug 15:47
45' - He is ok and comes back onto the field. We will have 3 minutes of added time in the first half. 
22 Aug 15:46
44' - Malajila is down for Sundowns. He is leaving the field on a stretcher. 
22 Aug 15:45
43' - A few challenges flying in from both sides now. Gavin Hunt, the coach of the Clever Boys is not very happy on the sidelines. Pelembe receives a yellow for a foul earlier. 
22 Aug 15:43
39' - It is still all Wits as they look for an equaliser before half-time. To be fair, the Sundowns defence is proving very difficult to crack at the moment. They deal easily with another free-kick. 
22 Aug 15:38
35' - More pressure from Wits, this time through a corner where Hlatshwayo has a free header but can only direct his attempt well wide of goal. 
22 Aug 15:37
32' - Wits cannot take advantage of the brilliant position of the free-kick as Klate shoots well over the bar. 
22 Aug 15:36
31' - Wits still pressing for an equaliser, they have a free-kick just outside the big box after a handball by a Sundowns player. 
22 Aug 15:30
28' - Mweene is down after Shongwe clattered into him. He will be able to continue. Nothing in the challenge, they were both going for the ball. 
22 Aug 15:26
24' - Billiat is proving a thorn in the Wits defence. Again he breaks down the right but this time the defender manages to stay with him and the ball runs out of play for a Wit goalkick
22 Aug 15:24

21' - Sundowns have broken the deadlock through Malajila after he makes an angled run to collect a very good short pass from Billiat. He calmly slotted home past Josephs.

Sundowns 1 Wits 0

22 Aug 15:22
GOAL - SUNDOWNS!
22 Aug 15:20
16' - Wits almost open the scoring! A cross from the right finds Klate. His header across goal seems to be going into the right-hand corner but Mphahlele somehow gets back and clears off the line! Brilliant work by the Sundowns skipper. 
22 Aug 15:18

15' - Sundowns breakout down the right win through Billiat. He tries to find Malajila in the centre, but his cross is slightly overhit and lands on the roof of the net.
