Watch the highlights as Mamelodi Sundowns go down 2-1 in their Caf Champions League semi-final first leg against Moroccan side Wydad Athletic Club
Saidi gave Wydad the lead in the 26th minute after receiving the ball in a lightning counter-attack before calmly slotting past Dennis Onyango.
The Moroccan side continued to push forward after their opener, but Onyango was proving to be in inspired form yet again for Downs in the Champions League.
It seemed as if the game would drift to the break with Wydad in the lead, until Andile Ngcongca pounced on a rebound to fire Sundowns level with a diving header three minutes before the break.
Wydad came out firing in the second stanza and regained their lead one minute from the restart when Badie Aouk was in the right place to tap home a rebound after Onyango failed to hold on to the shot, which proved to be the winner for the 2017 Caf Champions League winners.
Sundoowns know that they will only need a 1-0 win in their second-leg clash next weekend in order to progress to the Caf Champions League final.
