The only goal of the match for Sundowns was scored by midfielder Anthony Laffor who found the back of the net ten minutes from time to silence the home crowd which proved to be enough to send them through.
Before Laffor equalized in the closing stages, City were on course for a major upset as their star attacker Geoffrey Serenkuma had given them the lead in the 30th minute after he managed to get the better of the Sundowns defence.
The Brazilians went into this game with a slender aggregate lead after they beat City 2-1 at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville last week Friday through early first half goals by Bangaly Soumaharo and Ricardo Nascimento.
Serunkuma, who scored the hosts’ only goal on Saturday, was the scorer of City’s vital away goal in the first leg where he capitalized on a slip by Sundowns defender Anele Ngconcga to slot home.
