Soccer Laduma takes a look at Mamelodi Sundowns’ remaining Absa Premiership fixtures, with the Chloorkop-based outfit still set face to some tough fixtures ahead.
As things stand, the Brazilians have a six-point lead at the top of the current PSL log-standings, having accumulated 58 points from their 25 league fixtures.
Masandawana will have their work cut out for them as they prepare for the title run-in, which sees them realistically only competing with second-placed Bidvest Wits.
Due to their dominance in all competitions, Masandawana find themselves competing for a unique treble of trophies, consisting of the: Absa Premiership title, Nedbank Cup and the CAF Champions League.
Do their involvement in abovementioned competitions, one wonders if their hectic schedule will take its toll on the log-leaders in the last five PSL games of the season.
With Downs needing to overturn a 1-0 deficit, at home against Congolese giants, AS Vita, in the CAF Champions League, as well as facing Soweto Giants, Orlando Pirates, in the Nedbank Cup Quarter-Finals, one wonders if the club’s aspirations to be the best on the continent will affect their title run-in.
