Kaizer Chiefs may be the new Absa Premiership champions, but there is no way that they will claim the bragging rights over Mamelodi Sundowns in this evenings tie.
This fixture was tipped to be the title decider a few weeks back, but Downs’ slip to Bloemfontein Celtic and Platinum Stars ensured that they grabbed the title with three games to spare.
Nonetheless, tonight’s game at Lucas Moripe Stadium still has a lot to play for. The Brazilians are still pushing for a second place finish, while the knowledge of beating the champions carries a sense of revenge.
Pitso Mosimane is all about letting his opponents know who is boss and that is exactly the motivation he will instill in the team ahead of tonight’s clash.
One cannot claim that three points against Chiefs will simply take away the loss of seeing Sundowns failing to defend their title, but the knowledge that Downs prevented Chiefs from taking maximum points in both meetings this season will bode well.
Masandawana, do you think Sundowns will successfully take revenge off Chiefs tonight?
