Watch Stellenbosch United defender Mogamad de Goede’s horror tackle on Mamelodi Sundowns star Rivaldo Coetzee, labelled a career-ending challenge by Downs coach Pitso Mosimane .
The Brazilians were chasing the game after Ryan Moon opened the scoring for Stellies early on in the encounter.
They found a way back as Themba Zwane slotted home a controversial penalty, but then the game completely swung toward the defending Absa Premiership champs as De Groede received his marching orders in the 73rd minute.
Sundowns reserve keeper Reeyad Pieterse was also shown a red card on the substitutes bench for using foul language after the tackle.
Sphelele Mkhulise and Keletso Makgalwa then netted in the final 10 minutes as they got their names on the scoresheet to seal the three points for Downs.
After the match Mosimane was incensed by what he called a leg-breaking challenge on Coetzee, but was happy to take the three points.
