Three Signs Fatigue Is Starting To Set In At Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns have experienced a jam-packed schedule over the past year due to their CAF Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup commitments, and it seems fatigue could now be setting in. Do you agree?

The Brazilians lost to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, and it has sparked talk that the club may be experiencing a dip in form.

Here are a few signs that may indicate Sundowns are suffering from fatigue.

Struggling To Score In League Games
The Brazilians have, without a doubt, one of the strongest teams in Africa, let alone Mzansi, and they have been struggling to find the back of the net in recent games. In their past four Absa Premiership ties, Pitso Mosimane's side has scored just once – against Kaizer Chiefs. Is their strike force losing its firepower?

Increase Of Injuries
Sundowns welcomed the return of Khama Billiat to the set-up against the Glamour Boys after a three-week lay-off. In addition, Denis Onyango and Wayne Arendse have also been sidelined due to injuries. An increase in injuries often happens as a result of playing so many games, and is one of the first signs of fatigue.

Not As Convincing As Before
While they still have a number of games to catch up on, and are in the next round of the CAF Champions League, Sundowns are not showing the killer form they boasted last year. This can only be expected as a natural result of the heavy schedule they have endured over the past year or so.

Do you think Sundowns are starting to lose their fire?
