Mamelodi Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena says they made the game against TS Galaxy look harder than it was after a 2-1 win on Tuesday night.

Rushine De Reuck gave Sundowns an early lead with a powerful header and was immediately stretchered off with a concussion injury.

Peter Shalulile opened a two-goal cushion for the Brazilians just after the hour-mark and Masandawana had a lot of chances to bury the game, with Gaston Sirino in particular missing glaring opportunities.

Mokwena was asked about his thoughts on a 'hard fought victory', but felt his side were dominated throughout the encounter.

"No, I don't think so, I think clear only one team on the pitch and huge congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns and huge congratulations to this fantastic group of players," Mokwena told SuperSport TV,

"I mean how many chances did we create? We could have scored so many goals that's why I don't agree when you say 'hard fought' because we made it seem a little more difficult than what it was.

"But congratulations to the entire group, congratulations to the coaches, congratulations to the yellow nation," he added.

Masandawana will resume their league schedule on Saturday afternoon when they host Sekhukhune United.
