However, it was the visitors who created more opportunities in the game. They also had more possession that Sundowns.
Lebogang Manyama missed a second-half penalty to add to Chiefs’ attacking woes.
“I have to say we started the game very well.” Baxter told SuperSport TV after the defeat.
“I think the first 20 minutes we dominated the game completely and as you say during those 20 minutes you have to score. Because we did have good chances.
“And then as a sort of cold shower came their goal. It was a very poor goal from our side.
“And it wasn’t reflective of the game at all.
“I think we went on the backfoot for 15 minutes and we waited for Sundowns to try and put balls behind our back three and then I think the last 15 minutes we got the game back in the first half.
“So, we go in 1-0 down but I think we’ve had the better share of the play.
“We came out the second half, we changed the way we’re going to press them and suddenly they can’t get out and we’ve got them penned in. And then after 70 minutes, we conceded a goal.
“I still don’t know how we conceded it. It wasn’t great play; it was just someone twisting and getting himself to the by-line and crossed it and we didn’t deal with it.
“And then you’ve got to start chasing your own tail. And we lose our rhythm.
“But still, we’re not out the game and we miss a penalty.” He exclaimed.
