Sundowns destroys toothless Chiefs

The Brazilians put together an early attack which resulted in Khama Billiat finding room to shoot from outside the box but it went over the bar.
Sundowns continued creating more chances as Leonardo Castro tried his luck with a left-footed strike but it was an easy save for Itumeleng Khune.
There were big penalty appeals in the 21st minute when the ball seemed to strike the arm of Keegan Ritchie in the area but the referee waved away the protests.
In the 35th minute it was the visitors who broke the deadlock in controversial circumstances. A short corner was crossed towards Lorenzo Gordinho at the far post where he bundled it home. Replays showed the centre-back using his hand to direct the ball into the net.
However, on the stroke of half-time the hosts found their equaliser as Castro glanced a header home from Billiat's pin-point free kick from the left.
The hosts started brightly after the interval and won a penalty in the 55th minute when the ball struck Erick Mathoho's arm. Thabo Nthethe stepped up and coolly slotted the spot-kick.
The Amakhosi's woes continued in the 66th minute as they were reduced to 10 men. Gordinho deliberately handled the ball, earning him his second yellow card and his marching orders.
Pitso Mosimane's charges secured their three points in the 70th minute as they netted their third. Billiat swung in a free kick and Willard Katsande put the ball in the back of his own net.
Sundowns were in control of proceedings for the rest of the clash as they eased to a comfortable victory.
