The Brazilians ran out 7-0 winners at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in what was a first leg, second round preliminary encounter

On an easy afternoon for Mamelodi Sundowns there were a number of standout performers in the Caf Champions League thrashing of Le Passe.

Having scored five goals before half-time, Masandawana could probably have won by a larger margin had they kept up the intensity after the interval.

The home side were able to penetrate deep into their opponents' half nearly every time they got the ball, while barely having to defend their own half.

It was about as one-sided a game as one could ever see in continental competition football and Sundowns will get the chance to do it again in the second-leg encounter this coming Friday.

  • Denis Onyango

    Denis Onyango - 6/10

    A rare start, but Onyango was a virtual spectator as the visiting team failed to get any shots on goal.

  • Khuliso Mudau, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022

    Khuliso Mudau - 7.5/ 10

    Added a lot in attack down the right - got some great crosses in and cleverly set up Sirino's second goal.

  • Rushine De Reuck Mamelodi Sundowns

    Rushine de Reuck - 7

    Played a sweeper role and was effective in mopping up on the rare occasions the visiting side got the ball into the Downs half.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    Grant Kekana - 7/10

    Took his first minute goal well with his header from a short corner and had a comfortable afternoon in the centre of defence.

  • Aubrey Modiba, Mamelodi Sundowns, April 2022

    Aubrey Modiba - 8/ 10

    Scored what was probably the best goal of the game and also provided an assist for the first goal.

  • Themba Zwane Mamelodi Sundowns.

    Themba Zwane - 6.5/10

    A decent performance but he was quiet at times and missed a couple of chances to score.

  • Mothobi Mvala, Mamelpdi Sundowns, April 2022

    Mothobi Mvala - 6/10

    Was involved for the own goal scored by Le Passe and otherwise had a comfortable afternoon using his physicality to dominate the deeper midfield area.

  • Teboho Mokoena, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022

    Teboho Mokoena - 7/10

    Hustled hard in the opening stages to set the tone with his ball-winning - which put the Seychelles side under pressure from which they never recovered.

  • Sphelele Mkhulise, SuperSport United, August 2019

    Sphelele Mkhulise - 8/10

    Was especially prominent in pulling the midfield strings early on and capped off his display with an 87th minute goal.

  • Marcelo Allende, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2022

    Marcelo Allende - 7/ 10

    Showed some lovely pieces of skill and while at times he overdid it, it was a bright performance from the South American, full of quality.

  • Gaston Sirino Mamelodi Sundowns Marcelo Allende

    Gaston Sirino - 8/ 10

    Could actually have scored more because he was wasteful at times but still deserves credit for a great return of two goals and an assist.

    Didn't have much work to do in defence after coming on.

    An excellent cameo, Mailula provided a late assist for Mkhulise.

    Wasn't able to exert much influence.

  • Sipho Mbule, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2022
