Here's how Twitter reacted to the exciting match in Tshwane.
Things got out of control after Sundowns' fifth goal of the afternoon as a section of angry Pirates fans started dismantling TV cables.
So Pirates losing 5-0 to Sundowns so far and their fans vent their anger by dismantling TV cables!! Hope @OfficialPSL takes serious action!— robertmarawa (@robertmarawa) February 11, 2017
It was soon 6-0 to the Brazilians and the situation deteriorated badly as angry Pirates fans invaded the pitch in an attempt to stop Pitso Mosimane's men from scoring more goals.

Why complicate matters folks. Simple. Orlando Pirates must be banned from the PSL for two seasons. Period. There has to be a consequence.— Tito Mboweni (@tito_mboweni) February 11, 2017
