Throughout the season, Sundowns demonstrated unmatched consistency, often outclassing their opponents with both flair and discipline. Their offensive prowess, led by striker Peter Shalulile, and the creative midfield orchestrated by Themba Zwane, has been instrumental in their campaign. Additionally, the rock-solid defense, marshaled by Rushine De Reuck, ensured minimal goals conceded, making them a formidable opponent for any team.

However, the weekend’s clash saw Cape Town City rise to the occasion, delivering a masterclass in strategy and resilience. Playing in front of a packed stadium, Cape Town City executed a perfect game plan, exploiting weaknesses and capitalizing on opportunities. Their star forward, Khanyisa Mayo, scored the decisive goal that stunned Sundowns and thrilled the home crowd.
