That is all folks. Enjoy the rest of your evening. 

Thank you for choosing Sport24 to catch this Absa Premiership clash between Bloemfontein Celtic and Mamelodi Sundowns.

03 Oct 21:32
Celtic will be involved in derby this weekend (Saturday, 15:30) against Free State Stars while Sundowns welcome top of the log leaders Wits to the Lucas Moripe Stadium (Sunday, 15:30).
03 Oct 21:29
No changes in the log standings for either side as Celtic remain 4th while Sundowns anchored at 7th place. 
03 Oct 21:28

Despite chances from both sides it ends goalless at Dr Molemela Stadium ...

03 Oct 21:21

FULL TIME!

03 Oct 21:20
91' Tignyemb receives a yellow card for deliberate time wasting ...
03 Oct 21:18
90' Three minutes of stoppage time added on ...
03 Oct 21:14
86' Another chance for Celtic from a dead ball situation but a bit of confusion sees many players mess up the intended training drill free-kick as the ball is hit over the crossbar. 
03 Oct 21:13
84' Meza does well on the left flank and dummies a Celtic defender before he swings in a searching cross, Maboe gets a toe-poke on it and controls it before he puts it in the back of the net. But Zwane, who is offside, does not interfere with play seems to have been to close to the ball and the official waves his flag. 
03 Oct 21:10
83' GOOOOAAAALLLLL .... No, no goal! Disallowed 
03 Oct 21:09

80' Zwane comes on for Jali ...

Pitso using all his substitutes at his disposal

03 Oct 21:05
77' Meza replaces Silva for Sundowns ...
03 Oct 21:04
Meanwhile, Celtic have brought on Letsoalo to replace Kabelo Dlamini.
03 Oct 21:02
72' CHANCE! Time and time again it proves that players in the league lack composure in front of goal as Potsane, who is in acres of space and darts forward. Onyango comes off his line and out the penalty area. Potsane pulls the trigger and sees his low shot go way wide. Should have done better.
03 Oct 21:00
Meanwhile, Nascimento takes one for Sundowns and he is forced to foul a Celtic attacker and is booked.
03 Oct 20:59
69' CHANCE! Celtic moving well in between the gaps as they probe and search for a goal and Mabaso pulls the trigger but Onyango makes a brilliant save.
03 Oct 20:56
65' Substitute (Sundowns) - Sirino on - Mahlambi off
03 Oct 20:51
59' Kekana has a shot at goal but sees his effort go hide and wide ...
03 Oct 20:51
57' Substitute (Celtic): Mabena off - Tebogo Potsane on
03 Oct 20:45
53' Strangely, Celtic have begun the second-half exactly the way they started the first-half ... Slow and cautious. Not helping their cause as Sundowns continue to probe 
03 Oct 20:41

50' Sundowns really threatening Celtic here as they build patiently and make their way to the penalty area, but Jali hesitates and takes too long to offload to Langerman.

They will rue that ...

03 Oct 20:39

47' CHANCE! Woah ... Mahlambi darts pass a few green shirts before his shot ricochets off a defender and nearly lands in the back of the net.

Celtic clearly sleeping, hopefully they are awake after that scare ... Sundowns are up for it!

03 Oct 20:36
46' No substitutes on either side ...
03 Oct 20:34
45' Second-half is underway between Celtic and Sundowns ...
03 Oct 20:16
45' HALF-TIME 
03 Oct 20:16
43' Time stopped as medics attend to Bongani Sam ...
03 Oct 20:13
41' Screams from Komphela on the touchline as he urges his outfit to attack Sundowns
03 Oct 20:07
36' CHANCE! Mahlambi has a go at goal following a free-kick but his effort just dips over the crossbar ...
03 Oct 20:06

32' Sundowns attack and Jali finds Langerman with a superb long-pass, but Langerman fails to get it past the keeper.

It's good to have Jali back. A fit Jali can be dangerous.

03 Oct 20:04
30' Celtic 0-0 Sundowns
03 Oct 19:59

24' SAVE! Celtic have a chance to take the lead against the run of play, but Mabena goes for glory and it is saved. 

Mabena could have easily passed. Plenty of green shirts available ...

03 Oct 19:58
22' Vilakazi now on the wing, a position he is not often familiar with but Mosimane is using the player on the left wing despite having Lyle Lakay on the bench. 
03 Oct 19:56
20' Gordinho has been a busy fella so far dealing with shots from Kekana while coping with Mahlambi and Silva upfront ... so far so good
03 Oct 19:53
18' Celtic slowly seeing more of the ball now and putting in a few good passes. Finding their tempo. Could turn into a decent spell for them if they remain patient.
03 Oct 19:49
15' CHANCE! Kekana picks up a loose ball following a corner kick and the midfielder looks up and pull the trigger. Tignyemb stretches and palms the ball away ..
03 Oct 19:48
14' Interesting but typical Komphela as his side sits deep. Sundowns continue to probe ...
03 Oct 19:43

11' CHANCE! Sundowns come close after a mistake by De Jongh, but Silva hits the woodwork with his shot.

Fantastic effort ...

03 Oct 19:42

8' As expected Sundowns controlling things in midfield with Kekana and Jali dictating things.

Mahlambi and Silva teaming well upfront too ...

03 Oct 19:41
5' The first corner go Sundowns' way and it is easily cleared by Celtic.
03 Oct 19:41
3' Sundowns produce the first attack and come close before Silva is adjudged offside.
03 Oct 19:39
1' First half is underway ...
