Sundowns came into the game without key man Khama Billiat, but started well against a team that knocked out Kaizer Chiefs last year.
Keagan Dolly was busy early with his movement and also troubled the keeper with a shot that he did well to stop.
There wasn’t much action after that, and it took until the 38th minute for the hosts to turn it up. Hlompho Kekana and Themba Zwane didn’t close down the spaces well enough but they didn’t pay for it as AS Vita didn’t make much out of it. Yes, not much to sing about.
Just before the break Morrison should’ve given the hosts the lead though, but failed to beat Denis Onyango. The keeper was again on form in the second half, and again denying Morrison. This time from close on.
With the famous CBD trio not on the pitch Castro wasn’t his usual self. Cuthbert Malajila came on on the hour to give something new.
Dolly also should’ve scored thereafter and was guilty of shooting wide.
The hosts were on the front for most of the second half, although they had to wait until the 85th minute for their next chance, as Morrison blazed just wide from close range.
AS Vita stole the game in the second minute of stoppage time, as Onyango failed to deal with Morrison’s effort from distance and the ball fell to Kule Mbombo, who converted from three-yards out.
