The Sundowns showed some serious big match temperament and took the fight to the pirates by equalising in the second half and then stretched their lead to 4-1.
Social media erupted into a frenzy of joy and embarrassment as fans from both teams took to the internet to react to the match.
"Pirates fans angry at their players like they ever stood a chance. It’s Sundowns bafethu, just be happy the game is over and join the list of bruised PSL teams."
"How ya'll thought Pirates was gonna beat Sundowns is beyond me"
"Truth is that, there's no club in Flag of South Africa that can stand/face Flag of South Africa @Masandawana at the moment.
They are unplayable. Everything just seems to work for them. They have players who are hungry for more and a good technical bench.
Respect them. Clapping hands sign"
"There was no need for this game Sundowns should've proceeded to the next round without playing us, I knew we were gonna lose but I didn't think of losing with a rain of goals. Sundowns have been annoying for almost a decade now they don't have competition in PSL...There I said it."
Earlier, Briefly News reported that the evergreen Mamelodi Sundowns continued with their winning run as they demolished Orlando Pirates 4-1 in an entertaining Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Thursday evening.
