Can Downs Match Chiefs Unbeaten Run?

With Kaizer Chiefs ‘s unbeaten run of 19 league games grinding to a halt as they crashed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of SuperSport United last night in the Absa Premiership, can Champions Mamelodi Sundowns match Chiefs incredible unbeaten run?

Downs are currently on a 14 match unbeaten run, dating back to the 27th of August 2014 when they lost to Orlando Pirates 3-0 at Loftus Versveld.

Following that disappointing performance against Bucs, coach Pitso Mosimane managed to work on his combinations with great effect.

We are now seeing a more solid Sundowns, with an almost fixed set of players in every starting XI, with the new recruitments gelling well with players with the rest of the players at the club.

League leaders Chiefs were in a similar position last season in the league after they were knocked off their number one spot due to a string of unconvincing performances, only to be accompanied by a nine-match unbeaten run by Downs which ultimately led the Brazilians to being crowned league champions.

Downs have two games in hand and should they win both games, the gap between log leaders Chiefs and Downs would be reduced to seven points. This would then mean that Sundowns would be on a 16 match unbeaten streak, needing only three wins after that to match Chiefs winning streak. In turn that would mean that with 10 games to go, Chiefs would have to defend a seven point lead, interesting.

Downs are in a prime position to match Chiefs unbeaten streak, will they match it?
