Divine Lunga, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2021
In a tight game with few chances, the left-back impressed with both his attacking and his defensive play up and down the Brazilians' left flank

Divine Lunga was among Mamelodi Sundowns' top performers in their 0-0 league draw with Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

  • Denis Onyango - Mamelodi Sundowns

    GOALKEEPER: Denis Onyango - 8

    Another clean sheet, and another superb performance from the Ugandan. He was not overly tested, but made some important saves, especially the one from Taahir Goedeman in the 70th minute. Onyango looked solid and composed when tested with crosses and corners and set the tone for a settled defensive afternoon for Downs.

  • Khuliso Mudau, Mamelodi Sundowns, May 2021

    RIGHT-BACK: Khuliso Mudau - 6

    A fairly quiet game in terms of going forward, but did well to keep Surprise Ralani under wraps.

  • Grant Kekana, Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2021

    CENTRE-BACK: Grant Kekana - 7

    Solid and composed, Kekana barely put a foot wrong. One can see why he's keeping Rushine De Reuck and Ricardo Nascimento out of the team.

  • Mosa Lebusa of Mamelodi Sundowns.

    CENTRE-BACK: Mosa Lebusa - 6

    The former Ajax man had a solid match on his return to Cape Town - reading the game well and breaking up several attacks to ensure that Onyango was rarely exposed.

  • Divine Lunga Mamelodi Sundowns

    LEFT-BACK: Divine Lunga - 8

    Downs' best player, he battled hard with Thami Mkhize and mainly came out on top. The athletic Zimbabwean was tenacious in defence and especially potent on attack, getting in a header and shot on goal and also supplying some quality balls for his teammates.

  • Thapelo Morena of Mamelodi Sundowns, August 2019

    RIGHT WING: Thapelo Morena - 5

    Wasn't at his usual influential best and was not able to really get the better of Bafana Bafana teammate and Cape Town City left-back Terrence Mashego.

  • Andile Jali, Mamelodi Sundowns, September 2021

    CENTRE-MID: Andile Jali - 7

    Industrious and commanding, the veteran was in control of the engine room for much of the evening.

  • Haashim Domingo, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    CENTRE-MID: Haashim Domingo - 8

    Another former Ajax Cape Town player, Domingo was busting with energy all afternoon and seemed to cover the entire park - he got in a couple of efforts on goal including a superb free kick and also made one telling tackle in his own box.

  • Themba Zwane, Mamelodi Sundowns, October 2021

    LEFT WING: Themba Zwane - 5

    Tried hard to get involved and to offer himself for the ball, but it didn't happen for the Downs legend in the Mother City.

  • Thabiso Kutumela, Bafana Bafana, October 2021

    STRIKER: Thabiso Kutumela - 6

    Had one promising moment in the first box but got the ball tangled under his feet. Also hit a shot over the bar in the second half, but looked a little off his best.

  • Peter Shalulile, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    STRIKER: Peter Shalulile - 5

    One of the Namibian's less influential matches this season, he found City's DR Congo defender Nathan Fasika a very tough opponent.

  • Lyle Lakay, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2020

    SUBSTITUTE: Lyle Lakay - 6

    Came on after Lunga received a knock in the 77th minute. Did well to shore the Brazilians' defence as his former side tried to push for a winner in the closing stages.

  • Mothobi Mvala of Mamelodi Sundowns.

    SUBSTITUTE: Mothobi Mvala - 6

    As expected, the hard-man got stuck into some tackles after replacing Morena in the 77th minute and made a positive impact.

  • Neo Maema, Mamelodi Sundowns, November 2021

    SUBSTITUTE: Neo Maema - NA

    Was introduced in the 87th minute for Kutumela and had a decent chance three minutes later to win the game, but fired a powerful shot from the edge of the box too close to the keeper.

  • George Maluleka Sundowns

    SUBSTITUTE: George Maluleka - NA

    A rare appearance for the former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, though Maluleka wasn't able to get involved much after replacing Domingo in the 87th minute.
