The Brazilians made several changes in their lineup compared to their previous match against TS Galaxy, with players like Denis Onyango, Thembinkosi Lorch, Neo Maema, Rivaldo Coetzee, and Lucas Ribeiro Costa brought back to the team. Both teams were focused on establishing a rhythm in the early stages of the match, with no clear-cut chances.

However, the game took a turn when Amakhosi were reduced to ten men after Given Msimango was red-carded for a tackle on Ribeiro, who was going through on goal. Sundowns gained the upper hand and managed to create a great chance through Tashreeq Matthews, but his shot was saved by Bruce Bvuma.

Despite Amakhosi’s organized defense, the sides remained deadlocked at half-time. Chiefs made defensive changes after the hour-mark to limit the damage, but Matthews extended Sundowns’ lead with a looping shot.

Cavin Johnson’s team managed to score a consolation goal through Mduduzi Shabalala but was unable to prevent further goals from Costa and Lorch, resulting in a 5-1 victory for Masandawana. The victory crowned the Brazilians as champions and marked their league double over Chiefs.
