Although the Brazilians clinched a dramatic victory to seal a treble of trophies, Sundowns were taken to extra time at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
"I think it's the first time seeing Sundowns being outplayed," Mohlala tells KickOff.
"If you look at the stats, they tell you straight that we were outplayed.
"Maybe because Dan Malesela plays the same style as Sundowns, and I also think he was not under pressure to win the trophy.
"I think on Saturday we were not good as we usually are, it's the same as Liverpool, the reflection of Sundowns and Liverpool it's the same.
"Sundowns are playing against entire South Africa at the moment, everybody wants to beat Sundowns."
The Brazilians are reportedly close to strengthening their squad ahead of next season with the imminent arrival of midfielder Sipho Mbule.
