The lanky Dutch goalkeeper stopped two
penalties to hand the Citizens a 4-1 victory at Moses Mabhida
Stadium on Saturday evening.
The 24-year-old stated that he had a good
feeling about winning the match and had also studied how Matsatsantsa players
take their penalties.
“We should have finished the game in the
first-half, we didn't want to go to penalties," Leeuwenburgh told
“I was actually confident especially after
the win over Mamelodi in the semi-finals and I had a good feeling.
“I have to say, we did our home work again.
What we did against Sundowns, we did again against Supersport.
“We knew the players and knew where they
were going to go during penalties, but it's a team performance.
“You have to try and get a little bit into
his mind maybe. Just showing that you are confident and try to make him scared
or something like that.”
