Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
Abafana Bes’thende have shared the spoils with Mamelodi Sundowns tonight in a nail-biting draw at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
In what looked to be a relaxed and calculated game in the first 5 minutes, the tempo changed drastically and became on field battle with both teams trying to break the opposing teams defence and get the ball into the back of the net.
Sundowns held a great deal of possession in the half and created more opportunities, but the Golden Arrows defence did an amazing job in denying the home team the joy of scoring at every opportunity. Mbeava and the defensive players closed down and stopped any Downs attack, or, when they had shots, dealt with them accordingly.
The frustration was evident from Sundowns, and this allowed Golden Arrows to create strong and threatening counter attacks into the oppositions last 3rd.
There were a number of chances, but as like their opponents, were unable to convert them to score. Returning after the break, the teams came onto the park and were straight into the battle. Again, both teams attacked when they could, but neither were able to score.
The defending that Golden Arrows displayed was phenomenal, the attack was also strong tonight, it was just the final decisions which denied Arrows the win.
