ORLANDO Pirates claimed a comprehensive 3-0 win over 10-man Mamelodi Sundowns in Saturday's MTN8 semi-final second-leg clash.

Goals from Kermit Erasmus and Monnapule Saleng (brace) earned Bucs the win over the defending champions at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. The deadlock was broken by Erasmus as the veteran marksman silenced Masandawana fans inside the 2010 World Cup venue just eight minutes into the game with Saleng providing the assist.

Saleng, who was a constant threat to the Masandawana defence, then grabbed two second-half goals to seal Pirates' impressive victory and he was named Man of the Match.

Sundowns were reduced to 10 players in stoppage time after Aubrey Modiba was shown a straight red card for deliberately hitting the troublesome Saleng with the ball. Pirates reached the final after winning the tie 3-0 on aggregate with the first-leg clash having ended in a 0-0 draw in Orlando three weeks ago. – Goal
