Mamelodi Sundowns booked their place in the 2016 MTN8 semifinals with a 3-1 win over Tshwane rivals SuperSport United at Loftus Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The game kicked-off on time despite what seemed to be pre-match mind games – which resulted in some talk of the game being postponed – with both teams warming up on the same side of the pitch.
Two goals in the last 15 minutes settled the match as Sibusiso Vilakazi and Khama Billiat finished off the tie after it had been deadlocked at 1-1
Vilakazi did not know much about his debut goal as a shot from Hlompho Kekana hit him on the chin and deflected into the net.
Billiat then followed up with a second five minutes later after a smart build-up between Percy Tau and Vilakazi. The reigning PSL Player of Season placed the ball superbly into the net.
