Maritzburg stun Sundowns for first league win over the Brazilians in a decade

On the other, Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp will be relieved as this victory keeps them above the relegation zone with 21 points from as many outings.

From this defeat, their second of the season so far this league campaign, Sundowns will turn their attention to the Nedbank Cup last 16 on Tuesday afternoon where they host amateur side Mathaithai at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Sundowns were playing in their fifth consecutive away match in all competitions following trips to TS Galaxy in Mbombela, Al Ahly and Al-Merreikh in Egypt and Baroka in Polokwane.

The opening goal arrived after 36 minutes from the clever effort of Namibian hitman Shalulile who dropped down to beat Engelhardt after he connected with a delivery from Haashim Domingo.

The opener turned out to be Shalulile’s second goal in as many matches as he continues to recover from a recent goal drought that saw him go five matches without kissing the back of the net recently.
