Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer says his side put in a very good performance despite the scoreline suggesting otherwise, while Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi has praised his side’s resilience as they picked up the 3-0 win while battling a packed schedule.
Goals from Ricardo Nascimento, Peter Shalulile and Lyle Lakay handed the Brazilians a comfortable 3-0 win over the Soweto giants.
After a tight first half, things opened up in the second as Downs punished errors from the Pirates backline scoring three goals to seal a comfortable victory in the end.
Speaking after the game to SuperSportTV, Mngqithi praised his side’s resilience and teamwork as they managed to steady the ship after a few wobbles in recent games.
Zinnbauer, on other hand, said that the scoreline didn’t reflect the game while also admitting that injuries and lack of training time played a massive role.
