The reigning PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns clashed against AmaZulu at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and coach Pitso Mosimane guided his charges to a 5-0 victory at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
On the same afternoon, losing Wafa Wafa finalists in the form of Highlands Park welcomed Black Leopards in Tembisa and finally claimed a 6-5 win on shoot-outs following a goalless stalemate.
Meanwhile, the final match of the opening round saw Chippa United playing hosts to Bloemfontein Celtic in East London and a solitary strike in the name of Lehlogonolo Masalesa was enough for the Chilli Boys to give Zimbabwean coach Norman Mapeza’s debut win in the South African top-flight.
