Irrepressible Sundowns humiliate Pirates

Orlando Pirates put up a brief resistance by equalizing in the first-half, but that moment was the lone moment of joy in their 4-1 Nedbank Cup loss on Thursday to high flying Mamelodi Sundowns. The DStv Premiership leaders were simply too good and lived up to their “Brazilians” nickname with a dazzling display of expertise from their attacking stars. Peter Shalulile and Themba Zwane tallied and Uruguayan playmaker Gaston Sirino remained influential as Downs scored three unanswered after halftime to seal advancement to the semi-finals, where they will face Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.
